Missing parts of the Mass due to infant care

We teachers waxed long and elegant about "holy days of obligations" and "you have to be at Mass on Sunday," and I don't think we did anything but tick the kids off. If a religion has to threaten hellfire just to get their people to basic congregational worship, what does that say about the health of the religion?

I am not sure that I have even referred to the threat of hell when teaching my children about holy days of obligation.  That is so far down the list of reasons for going that I don't think that I have ever gotten to it.  Children do ask "why do I have to go to Mass" and there are a lot of good answers depending on the circumstances.  I cannot recall ever using that one.
