I'm not sure I agree with that. If they're old enough to be doing  
Haskell homework then they're old enough to make their own decisions  
and take the consequences of that. As they might say in Calvinist  
Scotland, "Let the child play with the knife, they'll soon learn" :)

Personally, I tend to find "exercises" without access to the answers  
a poor way to learn. You'll learn more from a well crafted example  
than you ever will by struggling at something yourself.
