    We always wonder whether our children will grow up and take to Krishna Consciousness or will they deviate from this transcendental path. Simultaneously, out of our natural affection we pray to Krishna for the welfare of our children so that they become His devotees in their adulthood. But with all our endeavors we cannot ensure that they will definitely stay on as devotees in the future.
