In the childhood it is easy to cultivate this God consciousness in the minds of children. They are more simple and open so the natural spiritual quality can be brought out by giving them Krishna prasadam, by chanting. So you love your child, it is alright. Now because you love your child you give your child the best. Try to free the child from the repetition of birth and death to give your child the God consciousness in addition to the material things that you have to provide. That is the proper dovetailing.
