Question:

When is it appropriate to use "there", "their", or "they're" in a sentence?

Answer:

"There" is used when referring to a place. "They're" is a contraction; it's short for "they are", so when "they are" can be substituted in, "they're" is appropriate. "Their" is used as a plural possessive pronoun, and can also be used as a singular gender neutral possessive pronoun. In other words, when referring to something belonging to multiple people, or belonging to a person that is not definitely male or female, "their" is the correct term.
