When Children Ask the Hard Questions

Kids come up with questions you can't answer as a parent. You can try to be prepared, but you're going to get those tough questions, and often there really isn't an easy answer. Or the real answer is too complex for them.

For example, my daughter just asked us:

"Why did they cancel Arrested Development when the third season won an Emmy?"

Sometimes it's tough being a parent.

Oh, come on. THAT'S an easy one. The general TV watching populace isn't smart enough to appreciate quality.

You think that question is tough. Wait until she asks you why Firefly didn't even get all of its episodes broadcast, and why the series pilot was the last episode shown.
