If you had your child baptized Catholic, do you have ANY idea what you agreed to?

"Husband and wife, raised to the dignity and the responsibility of parenthood, will be zealous in fulfilling their task as educators, especially in the sphere of religious education, a task that is primarily their own."

Vatican II
Gaudium et Spes
Paragraph 48

The question every parents is asked before Baptism starts:  "You have asked to have your child baptized. In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training him (her) in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to bring him (her) up to keep God's commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?"

WOW!  That's awesome.  Humbling,  Challenging.  And scary. And Wonderful
