I’ve seen Jewish parents educate their children to perform mitzvahs before bar or bat mitzvah age, which I assume is to ready them for being adults. Why then do I not see young boys wearing or owning tefillin? Thanks for this helpful service.

Question
Dear Rabbi, I recently took a college class to better understand my Jewish heritage. Now my question for you is this: Why is the “mitzvah system” of the 613 commandments considered so important? The concept of a “mitzvah system” seems to have a very special place in Judaism. Why, Rabbi? Thanks!
