I know many children that do understand the seriousness of baptizing at an age less than twelve. I agree with Campground man on this.

In most cases I would agree, however when they come to you quoting scriptures and saying the feel they'd be lost if they did die because they know the difference in right in wrong - it's probably not a good idea to discourage it.
I do know of one instance where a parent denied a child because of age - the kid never showed any interest after that and later died as an adult never obeying the gospel.
