You can say to a child "Your imagination is like a wild stallion. It's strong and powerful. You need to tame it. You need to be in charge. Once you do that, imagine how much fun you're going to have with it. If you don't establish that you're in charge, what is that going to be like? You're going to be holding on for dear life and, how much fun will that be? Not much!"
