EmeraldCity, that response is delightful.

Of course, it wouldn't have been to the frustrated parent, I am sure-- I can remember wildly arguing with my spouse when DD was about 2yo-- he was CERTAIN that it was irrationally outside of all expectation for me to lean on our toddler-aged DD over a missing library book.

I can remember turning to him and saying "You just watch-- she knows where things are."

Sure enough, once I had fully emphasized the importance of finding the book, it took her less than 90s to go up the stairs, and return with it.
