	Are you using $HOME directories? Did you think about that?
It could easily solve the problem. If using $HOME directories is
not an option, you should think about using ACL on the FileSystem,
something like:

	/pubroot		-> Everyone can read
	 - children0001		-> ACL to children0001 rw

	You do only one share, everybody will be able to see the
top directories, but the ACLs will only allow the right person to
access the directory. It has the advatange that you can create
script to manage it and the ACL will the applied with inheritance
fro the top folder.

	You can also use some variable in smb.conf to have a
similar [homes] share, but I don't like the idea of reinventing
the wheel. :-)
