Dutch term or phrase:je zult maar een idool hebben
(tekst bij een foto van een kind wat opkijkt tegen een 'idool')
Explanation: This would be very apt IMHO. I suppose you could say "isn't it great to have an idol to look upto", but I would suggest that would be superfluous given the image of a child looking up at the photo. The word "idool" is much more readily used in The Netherlands as in English speaking countries. We in the UK confine the use of the word idol to popstars nowadays.
