They're: contraction for "They are"
Their: a possessive term, used as in "these are their children"

I apologize, but please realize the difference and practice the same standards, especially if you have dedicated your life to home-schooling your child.
I understand there is little formality on these forums, but it's much easier when a posting is legible and you can take somebody seriously for what they are saying.
