+Hasesh with integer keys are treated differently and you can declare
+the attributes as if they were direct children. You get this kind of
+parameters when you use `accepts_nested_attributes_for` in combination
+with a `has_many` association:
+
+```ruby
+# To whitelist the following data:
+# {"book" => {"title" => "Some Book",
+# "chapters_attributes" => { "1" => {"title" => "First Chapter"},
+# "2" => {"title" => "Second Chapter"}}}}
+
+params.require(:book).permit(:title, chapters_attributes: [:title])
+```
