THE CATECHISM ON THE DUTY OF PARENTS:
#2223 Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children...
#2224 The home is the natural environment for initiating a human being into solidarity and communal responsibilities...
#2225 Through the grace of the sacrament of marriage, parents receive the responsibility and privilege of evangelizing their children. Parents should initiate their children at an early age into the mysteries of the faith of which they are the "first heralds" for their children. They should associate them from their tenderest years with the life of the Church. A wholesome family life can foster interior dispositions that are a genuine preparation for a living faith and remain a support for it throughout one's life.
