Jayapataka Swami: You seem to be doing a lot of seva. You are managing a restaurant, you are doing some translation work, at the same time you have a daughter. You said your daughter is 9 years old. Somehow you have to give some quality time to your daughter. 9 years old means that probably she goes to school. When she comes back from school, you or your husband can give some time to your daughter. Also taking care of your daughter, Srila Prabhupada said, that is also a devotional service. Srila Prabhupada said they are Vaikuntha kids that have been sent to you to make them Krsna conscious! To be born in the family of devotees is the highest birth! So somehow you have to do the time management. Give some time to your daughter, at the same time give time to your other services. Since your daughter probably goes to school, at that time you can do some other things. But the daughter should know that she has some dedicated time. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, he had to work as a judge, as a magistrate. But he gave two hours a day to his family. And he was writing books, preaching, chanting his japa. But he gave time every day for his family. So somehow you have to balance out, you have to take care of your daughter as one of your services. If she becomes a devotee, that would be to your credit. She should not say that because, my mother was a devotee, she did not take care of me. It seems you are doing a lot of service.
