Welcome Yvonne! Are you newly diagnosed? How is it affecting you?
A good place to start is the Lupus Foundation site. They have a page devoted to talking to your children: http://www.lupus.org/webmodules/webarticlesnet/templates/new_aboutintroduction.aspx?articleid=526&zoneid=9, but there is so much good information there about living with lupus and resources available for you.
There is also a wealth of information here from the folks who actually live with lupus on a daily basis. We've got people of all ages and situations, so hopefully you will find some great people to connect with. Reading through the past posts and "stickies" can be very helpful and a good way to figure out who also has young kids.
