"Yes, that is, as I understand it, the reason why the US failed to sign. They need to be able to execute children in some states."
The United States does not desire to sign many of the U.N.'s declarations, because the U.S. does not desire to cease being a sovereign nation in any regard, and in turn become a nation whose actions are determined by a 'united' group of nations, which is supposed to be dedicated to individual rights, but includes among its members the greatest violators of individual rights in history, including Red China.
The U.N. is like a neighborhood crime watch that invites the criminals to join.
