"Contracepting Clergy" and the neglect of robust catechesis of children

Recalling this video from last year's October Synod, one of our west coast correspondents writes:
Michael's Vortex on contracepting clergy is truly outstanding. The word that must not be spoken. Perhaps the biggest mistake of Vatican II and the post Council was the shift from child to adult catechesis. While the entire West was reacting to the cultural explosion brought about by the pill, the catechesis of children (at which the Church excelled) was called off for the sake of a misguided rationalism insisting that only critical adults should be catechized. What folly! The one group immune to the sexual revolution thus denied formation in the faith.
