You don't. You let them figure it out themselves. If you're being pushy they will not do it faster. They need a situation where they think "if I knew how the browser sent out this request, I would have had the solution much quicker" and then they go figure it out.

 

Yes. That is correct. But I try not to be pushy but be helpful as much as I can and explain how things work. But when someone says I don't know how to center a text vertically, I just used this class and it works fine! I think then you need to explain to them that they should know what that class actually does. Right?
