I think you could use the # of seats for just the adults, then on a seperate card (like the reception card or an insert) you could explain that children are welcome but explain the seperate room part for them.  I think parents will want to know if their kids will be with them or in another room (although I think they would be thrilled to get a break!).

@k_lovelife03 I don’t have any advice, but thanks for asking the question! We are having kids at our wedding too, mainly because we have a lot of cousins that we would like to come and they all have kids they wouldn’t want to leave behind.  What is going on in the seperate room?  Did you hire a babysitter or two?

I would keep the card for just adults, address the invitations to include the children and then include a note at the bottom of the RSVP card that says somethink like, “A childrens’ selection will be offered. Please alert us if you will be bringing any children under (age).” The line of seats offered should be just for the adults but should include teenagers. The age of delineation will probably be determined by our caterer. We had to count all 10 and over as adults.

Maybe you should say you have reserved for __ adults and __ children on all the cards and that way there is no confusion? I would be confused if there were three names on the card but only two seats reserved. I recently received a wedding invitation where they asked for ___number of adults, __ number of children and __ not attending. It did not specify the total number of guests we were allowed per invite though.

I really don’t see how people would confuse thatyour you address the invitation to “smith family” or whatever, and there are 3 of them, I’m sure they count their child as a person. I don’t see thmended to do anything else, unless your guests are incredibly dumb! (no offense)!
