Hello everyone.

Does it make any difference if I put ''all''after you in this sentence?

I want all you children to be as good as gold.

No significant difference. You are just adding emphasis that you want each and every child to be good.

Hi Kanta,

If you put 'all' after 'you' in your sentence, you end up with 'you all children', which doesn't make sense. Did you mean that?

I would say: I want all of you children ...
