Hello My name is Janelle I have four children 4,8,10,and 12. I’m writing not so much with advice but am also seeking advice. I’ve always been catholic but never a practicing catholic untill about 6 months ago and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been but my 12 years old son refuses to go to church and I’ve kind of let him decide not to go but when I was speaking to the priest he oviously told me I really should be getting him there! He has always attended ccd and has always complained. My 8 and 10 years old girls don’t exactly love to go but they don’t give me too bad of a time. I think If we keep trying to explain the reason for going and why it is so important hopefully it will sink in. Or mayby some nice video’s like The Lady of Fatima It’s funny and touching at the same time and it shows how powerful faith is. And I think this week maybe wedneday night on EWTN they have some kind of show on raising good catholic Families that might be helpfull you can look on the website for the exact day and time if your interested. Well goodluck let me know if you get any good advice.
