You have to know that your children are not the same children of old days though it's hard to admit it if you are parents. The mind control which a destructive cult use is different from brain washing, and it's an advanced and sophisticated method.
More importantly, it's very dangerous for you to judge how much your children are affected by the mind control. I'll mention this matter later, but you need to rely on counselors who have abundant experiences. As a minimum standard, you better think that you can't handle the case if you feel "something different" in your children.
If you receive counseling from a reliable counselor at the first place, the issue would not escalate. You may think lightly, for example "He would understand what we say." "He'll quit if I talk." "She will awake soon." "My children wouldn't do such things." But these attitudes may make the situation more serious. If you think "It's still OK." in the common sense, it's "too late".
You take your children to a doctor when your children become sick or injured even though they are not so serious. Are you trying to solve the problems all by yourselves while something awful is occurring in your children's mind?
Your first action to do is to look for your "rescue counselor" who you are going ask to rescue your children. You need to see many counselors as many as possible, gather information and continue to research. If you find a reliable counselor, you have to trust the person without worrying. Your case will be solved if you prepare and act patiently without any hassles, without giving up.
