In our Heortling games, children cannot learn any magic, as per Thunder Rebels p.58. (Admittedly TR was written before the game system had common magic, but it says "forbidden certain things (such as having sex or learning magic).")

It's impossible to prevent someone from having innate magic though... My guess is that children who have it are frequently those who are initiated much earlier than the norm.
