"My ways are not your ways"
Can you imagine playing Kasparov at chess? I think he'd wipe the floor with me! Or can you imagine a six year old child debating Physics with Einstein?

Could you begin to explain it? Perhaps a little; but there
are limits to what they can understand at so young an age. You would
certainly have to explain in very simple language, and that might give
them a glimpse of what you do.
