Ok...I beg forgiveness before I even make the next statement...because it seems I am kicking a dead horse.
However, let me give you an example from my parish.
When I was a child, there were many families in the church who had children my age. Dozens. A few of those families made a point of "dragging" their kids to church each Sunday. You may call it indoctrination or whatever you like. However, those kids were in church, by choice or not, I don't know.
Other kids were left to "rest" and have fun, while their parents came to church. After all, those poor kids have been in school all week, and they really need to sleep in once in a while. It's all good. They will find God in their own time, in their own way.
Forward 15 years. The kids who were coming to church with their parents were still coming. The others still weren't. At the church parish meetings, the parents of the MIA children would yell and shake their hands at the priest. He's not doing his duty to excite the youth...to bring them into the fold. Is it really the priest's duty alone? What about those parents?
Forward another 15 years. The kids who were going to church with their parents, are still in church on Sunday's with their kids, now. The one's who got to sleep in, well, they haven't found God, yet. They don't show up unless it's Easter or Christmas, and most don't even do that.
So, if given the choice of indoctrinating our youth...so that as adults they flourish and of their "free will" want to learn more about their faith and appreciate it....and come and bring their kids....I am all for it!
I pity the souls who have completely lost their way. The parents are now old. They can't see, they are bent over....and half of them can't even come to church anymore, because they can't drive...and ..oh, their kids don't care enough to take them to church. Those "kids" are sleeping in after a hard week at the office.
Teach them when they are young....they will always learn more if they want to...and if they don't care for Orthodoxy, they can leave at any time!
Hit, while the iron is hot! Don't miss the opportunity.
That's all I have to say on this subject!
Peace to all!
