Catechesis according to Church Teaching
1.) "Parents are the first to pass on the faith to their children & to educate them in it." (Second Vatican Council's Decree on Laity)
 
2. "Catechesis is an education in the faith of children, young people & adults..." "...in an organic & systematic way...", "...into the fullness of Christian life."
(Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) - p. 8, no. 5, 1994 USCCB, Ligouri Press, St. Louis)
 
3.) The Family and the Church "build(s) catechesis on four pillars:"
(Church teaching from Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture, the teaching Magisterium of the Church (the Pope, and the Bishops in communion witgh him...) (CCC - p. 9, no. 13)

4.) The Four Pillars of Catechesis...The Creed, The Liturgy & The Sacraments, The Life of Faith (the moral life), & The Lord's Prayer. (See CCC) or The Roman Catechism.

5.) Parents teach eating, sleeping, dressing, cleaning, working, counting, pronounciation, etc. - PARENTS ARE TEACHERS!

6.) Parents teach manners, responsibility, respect, right from wrong, prayers & why God made us. - PARENTS ARE CATECHISTS! (If parents wrote down the things they already say or do to teach & to catechize, they might be very surprised. )
