When you click that little edit icon next to each child you should see a pop up window appear. Make sure that pop up isn't hiding behind the browser window you are currently looking at. If you have multiple windows open, you should be able to click the WINDOW menu on your browser to see what's open.
If you still need help you can always contact The CafeMom Admin Team.
