Don't - it's just a matter of learning to slow your thinking down.

A lot of riddles are easy - they just sound hard, so people give up.

Kids don't know that riddles are 'hard' so they aren't defeating themselves.

How do Kindergartners know the answer? I didnt get it and was kicking myself when I scrolled down and got the answer.

I don't know..kids today...too clever for their own good.
