When school begins in the fall many 2nd graders are eager to learn about the Sacraments they will be receiving in the coming year. It is probably easy for them to understand about receiving their First Eucharist because they see people receiving Jesus all the time at Mass. But going to Reconcilation/Confession, might have them wondering what it's all about. Chances are they may not be with Mom and/or Dad when they go to Confession or if they are...why are they going into that room?
Here is a good video to watch with them to help answer questions they may have "How Do I Go To Confession"
Here is an activity that you can do at home to help them feel more at ease about going to First Reconciliation. This would be a good family activity or maybe invite another family and practice together. "How to practice going to Confession Activity"
