|SheEino Yodei'a Lishol - What Do We Want From Such Little Kids?|
On pesach every child needs to be involved so we do all sorts of extraordinary things that we don't do during the year just so the children ask. And if they are too little to comprehend these changes or don't have the capacity to open their mouths and ask "At P'sach Lo", we put the questions in their mouths. If they are too young to make even this minimum effort of asking, why do we bother with them at all? Even for Chinuch the children need to be old enough to participate in the mitzva. Why not wait until next year when they develop and mature?
Just like we use the rule that women are obligated in a Mitzva where they were part of the Nes, so too these little children are very much a part of Pesach and we help them if they are unable to help themselves.
