Are our kids forced to tolerate us?

Dear all, I beg your blessings for me to be Krishna conscious.

Most of us parents, even devotees, knowing importance of tolerance, still sometimes end up NOT tolerating our kids, many times.

My first opportunity to preach to my school friends through what's app..

Hare Krishna,

Dandavat Pranam. I got my opportunity to preach to my school class mates being part of what's app where almost (well almost) all of my class mates are members. I was delighted and so thought that I should share this here.

The background is the rememberance by a friend of a friend who passed away very young many years back and a trigger of exchanges. one of which was by another friend which was the trigger for my getting into the conversation.
