Keep It Simple

Childhood used to be more simple,
Play left more to the imagination,
There was not as much indulgence.

Good character requires less indulgence,
It should not despise what is simple,
And should make use of the imagination.

Encourage your child's imagination,
Avoid unwarranted indulgence, 
Admittedly, that will not be simple.

The simple truth is that indulgence ultimately kills the imagination.
