Thank you for your reply, but if we all have separate accounts then I won't be able to locate everyone on one map using find my iPhone. Or is there a way around that? I have 2 young teens and a 10 yr old. I feel better knowing I can find them if something happens.

This isn't an iCloud issue. The issue is that you are using the same ID for iMessage. To fix this go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive on all your devices and do one of the following:
- Either uncheck the email address shown under "You can be reached by iMessage at" on all of your devices; or
- If you want to continue to receive iMessages at this email address on one of your devices, on all of the other ones tap the Apple ID at the top, sign out, then sign back in using a different Apple ID (so all devices will be using a different Apple ID for iMessage). Note: you can continue to share an Apple ID for purchasing from the iTunes and App stores. It does not need to be the same as the ID you are using for iMessage, FaceTime and other services.

Find friends is the app that is intended to let you know the whereabouts of chosen people, rather than find my phone. The way you are using Find my phone now, it's possible for others using the same account to wipe your device.
