Children up to the age of five are strongly influenced by the behavior and habits of their parents and elders at home and tend to imitate or soak in whatever they hear or see around them. These years are laying their foundation and one can almost predict their future caliber as adults based on their training during these crucial five years. We have many examples within ISKCON of children who were raised in a Krishna conscious environment from the very beginning of their lives and are now a source of inspiration for all. On the other hand, children who are raised in non-devotional atmosphere with television and computer games for their association tend to continue doing these things in their later life.
