Measuring Trends Children in Households

I'm working on a project, in R studio using ACS1, to find trends of the total number of children 6 to 14 years old (individually, total number of children 6, 7, 8 , 9-years old, etc..) in households with either both parents, or single parents. I can only find combine ages such as 6 to 11 years and 12 to 17 years, however, I'm looking for individual ages. Does the US Census release that coding information? if so, do you have any suggestions on where or how to find it?

Thank you!!
