I let my kids watch Back to the Future for the first time today. Has anyone explained time travel to a five year old successfully? I think I may have damaged the poor child's mind permanently! Now he is constantly asking these future vs. happening now events questions. Such as:
"If I eat this pizza now, and then time travel back to yesterday right away will I be hungry mom?"
Me: "Did you do your homework?"
Him: "Mom, I time traveled to the future ahead three days, got my homework from my teacher, went back and did it. Now I'm farther ahead than anyone!"
Me: "Oh, good. Did you get all the answers since you went into the future?"
Him: "Mom, that's cheating!"
Reminds of the wonderful book The Fermata. Oh the possibilities!
