Reality vs Fantasy

At our last parents-teacher meeting, Amber's principal commented that Amber is very good at her coloring (again, something new to us). She said Amber always gets a prize for coloring and she does a very creative and neat job.

However, she also thinks Amber cannot be getting the prize all the time, schoolwork isn't all about winning. She gave the prize to another kid and explained to Amber that the other boy got the prize because his donkey was the right color, whereas Amber's turned out like :

a multicolored donkey .. muahahahahaha....
Would you let your kid run wild with imagination and color to their hearts content or teach them to think and color what is right ?
