Would that sentence not translate to family, rather and children?

Either translation (as well as others) is possible.

Actually children is the "correct" translation, but family can be used too, if you're talking with a native then it's used as child at least with the native speakers I know

Is there a different form in Irish for "talk to" and "talk with" eg. "The teacher talked to the students", "I talked with my friends"; or is the same form used in both cases?
