Is this not a leading question? In other words do not young children, wanting to please the questioner, therefore find an answer that seems to fit the 'why' question?

I agree. The question itself presumes things are created for a reason to ask "why."

Also, it is impossible to isolate children from all religious influences, even if the parents do not have any such beliefs. These attitudes are too prevalent in society for one to entirely isolate a child from such ideas.
