A few weeks ago my daughter had her 1st Reconciliation (aka 1st confession). She and her Catholic friends were all so nervous. She even cried one night all worried about it. She felt much better after we talked in depth and I explained that she would not get in trouble, it was just like talking to someone and feeling better afterward. Her wonderful 2nd grade (school of religion) teacher was so great. They did a fabulous job helping the kids understand and be comfortable.
Afterword she said it went great. She said, I know Father gave my sins to God and God throws them in the trashcan. :) I think thats a great analogy.
