I'm terrible at using these in the appropriate places, some help me please.
Their - its not mine, it belongs to them.
there - places etc.
They're = they are
their = they are the children of those parents
there = where they're sat
But not TOO clever, or everyone will just get confused.
'They're' is 'they are'. The apostrophe is in place of the missing 'a'. That's not really a trick though...
'Their' is possessive. So, maybe if you look at the 'i' and think 'mine', or maybe that a person ('i' am a person) can have something.
Finally 'there', like a place. That's like 'here' isn't it? But there, with a 't'.
I should've been on sesame street. Next week... practice/practise! (remember guys, ice is a noun [a thing] but ise isn't)
let the pedants sort it out
