How are the words there, their, and they're used properly?

Many children, and adults, fail to remember when to use each one. There are, however, ways to remember that I cover to keep children informed on how to learn each difference, and remember it.

I think you have a typo in your answer. I think you meant "sometimes" followed by "is or are, not "always." When used for location, for instance, "there" stands alone ("it is over there"). I didn't want the typo to ruin your good answer. Maybe you can edit it... :)
