You realize that we can resolve this question with a simple prayer experiment, right?
First off, when I raised kids - I would give them all the answers up front. I wouldn't just give them your choices and make then answer. One cannot make an accurate decision if the information isn't present.
Your analogy is irrelevant.
So if your kid asked you for icecream before supper, you would say:
"Yes, no, not now. Pick one."?
Sorry I don't follow.
