Let the little children come to me… Part II: from 7 to 17 years old (Confession and Holy Communion)
The majority of questions asked by parents are about how to teach children to go to confession and pray, how often they should be brought to church and take Holy Communion, and how to prepare them for Holy Communion. There are no simple answers to all these questions. In the author’s opinion, the atmosphere within families is key to the successful religious upbringing of children nowadays. Archpriest Georgy Krylov’s differentiation of Orthodox families contributes to our understanding of the aforementioned atmosphere.
