Children_val is a local variable, scoped only within your if
conditional. Declare it outside the block. Also, you have some logic
issues, but I can't fix them because I'm not sure exactly what you're
trying to do.

You want an alert when:
(a) any of the checkboxes is yes and no age group is checked?
(b) a checkbox and its matching age group is not checked?
(c) something else?
