THE ROLE OF THE CHILDREN 
Our sages said that before g-d gave the torah to the Jewish people, he demanded guarantors. The Jews made a number of suggestions, all rejected by 
g-d, until they declared, “our children will be our guarantors that the Jewish people will cherish and observe the torah”; G‑d immediately accepted them and agreed to give the torah.

When the Torah is read in the synagogue on shavuot, G‑d is actually giving the torah anew. Therefore every Jewish man, woman and especially children should make every effort to be present in a synagogue as the Ten commandments are read from the torah.
