Jayapataka Swami: Be good examples. Canakya said that for the first five years you spoil the child and give lots of affection and then from six to fifteen be very strict and then from sixteen up treat the child as a friend. But you try to share with the child the devotional realizations you have and that should inspire the child to be Krsna conscious.  I heard that one of the children, six years old, chanted on the day I went for the operation – 32 rounds!  so like this all children born to devotees are very special. Srila Prabhupada called them Vaikunta kids so they should be treated very specially.
