Amma says:

"Some people doubt whether children should meditate and do japa at such a young age... The training and discipline which are given in youth will create a strong impression in the mind and play a great role in the building of character. Parents should take care not only to feed and fulfill the wishes of their children but also to discipline them, instilling faith and good culture."
