You want to look at Nested Forms I think. The rails guide Getting
Started (I presume you have worked through the guides?) gives a brief
introduction to this and google will provide many links.

You can see Railscasts #73, #74, #75 which deals with the same problem. Also searching on any search engine will also help.

thanks Colin

but The children is a single model(single DB table)

and what i want to do is create multiple instance of children from a
single form with validation for the child fields

but the normal new and create method doesn't provide for creating
multiple innstance of a model in single form ,It just provides
creating a single instance

That is what Nested Forms do. See section 9 in the getting started guide.
