Concerning Eucharistic Prayers for Masses with Children, number 4 of the 1974 decree of the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship, Postquam de Precibus provides an answer:
"Use of a Eucharistic Prayer for Masses with Children is restricted to Masses that are celebrated with children alone or Masses at which the majority of the participants are children.
"A community of children means one so considered by the Directory for Masses with Children, that is, one consisting of children who have not yet reached the age referred to as preadolescence."
