    At 53:38 in this YouTube video youtu.be/jNA_1-WNDzE?t=3218 also found a Google hit at this link spiritual-teaching.org/ewExternalFiles/… : Do not fall prey to despair when the mind urges you toward worldly enjoyment. By any means, turn your attention toward the Lord. Do not prohibit by force a child from doing some wrong act, show the child something more attractive and turn its attention elsewhere. "Lalayet Chitta Balakam"- persuade with indulgence the mind, which is a child. – sv. Oct 2 '15 at 4:51
