When am I required to have my children attend Mass every Sunday?

We have “Sunday School” at our parish during the 9pm Mass. We are encouraged to go to Mass with our kids AND send them to Sunday school.

Is there an age where it is obligatory to bring our children into the Mass.

I ask this because my wife is a non-catholic and is very lax in her faith. She goes to Mass with me but I often notice her picking at her cuticles or staring off into space.

My hope is that by being undisturbed by our children’s needs, she might begin to see the beauty and wonder of the Mass.

HELP! :confused:
