Children of parents

I am having trouble putting the children on GR as every time I type out a name it comes up with a different parents names and also if the parents have been married before I still cannot insert the children on, that has been happening for about nearly two weeks now, any suggestions please.

Thank you
Effie Lewis

Not too sure if this will help.

But whenever I add children to my tree (no longer on here, but worked when it was) I always add them to the mother, never the father.

I just tried adding children to parents who had been married before, adding one via the father and one via the mother.

Both were added correctly although I had to add the surname for the one added via the mother.
