Sacramental Meeting?

Both of us/our family are not religious, nor are we atheists. However, our child have been going to a Catholic school from JK to Gr 2, we liked the environment, had friends that recommended the school and most of our neighborhood kids went there. We were just informed to attend a mandatory Sacramental Meeting " if you would like to have your child make the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist this year with his/her classmate."

Should we let her attend the Sacraments? We believe the child should believe in whatever religion she truly believes in, however, at this point we are not sure if she understands the religion, and it would be a rush to attend the Sacrament?

People are allowed to change their minds on these things as they gain new experiences and form new thoughts. Why not let your child attend the service if they want to - and then in the future they still retain the ability to choose a different religion?

It's not like once they receive the Sacraments they are tied to Catholicism forever. Instead, give them the opportunity to choose now and in the future.
