I am here, Jesus.
Let me instruct you in the Law of Compensation and children. You reason that infants and children do not have adult responsibility, so how does God manage the Law of Compensation with them?
Obviously, an infant is not wholly conscious of the moral law. It requires food and changing and sleep, and does not reason or make moral decisions.
But as the infant grows, it soon finds morality, because it is part of its soul. So what I am saying is that fairly soon, a small child develops moral choices and motives.
Children can do evil. This is a fact, which many can attest to. And that is because children, just like adults, have a soul, for which they are accountable.
Obedience to a parental demand is one thing, but moral choice is another, and children experience the latter as much as adults.
