If you were trying to solve a riddle, would you want me to tell you the answer before you had a chance to figure it out for yourself?

If you were putting together a jigsaw puzzle, and I offered to finish the rest of it for you, would you let me?

If you were assembling a Lego set, would you accept a fully-assembled version if I offered it to you?

There are many people who will offer you answers to your most challenging problems in life. Their answers might be wise with good intent, but being handed the answers ruins the game, spoils the ending, and prevents you from learning important lessons.

Maybe ask for hints instead.
