I was surprised at how cumbersome the answers were from those attempting to teach it to children. My answer that even children would understand (and that all other meanings of philosophy naturally spring from) is: Q: What is [western] Philosophy? A: Being able to answer the question, Why do you think what you think? Why do you believe what you believe? And while you want to be able to answer to someone else's satisfaction, you foremost want to be able to answer to your own satisfaction because you want to know the truth. (BTW, the western bit is "we believe humans are capable of doing this ourselves")
