Grammar question - possessive of children (trying again)?

Sorry, I asked this wrong earlier. I'll try again.

Let's say you're saying the possessive of something plural. For example, a country of the citizens would be the " citizens' " country.

Now, how do you say that with children? According to Microsoft Word, " childrens' " isn't correct.

    Children is already plural, so you just add the 's (children's).

    You don't add the s first, since it doesn't need it to be pluralized.
