Remembering what's masculine and what's feminine is becoming hilariously complicated.. there must be a trick to help spot which is which..?

Is it wrong to translate " the children " into "les garcons"???

In this case I think so because it is not mentioned that the children are boys. Les garçons (masculine) = The boys.

i put l'enfants and it was wrong. i thought the l' rule overrides all the other le/la/les rules?

No. The rule is le and la contract. Les does not contract, hence the title of the famous film is: au revoir les enfants
