Default trying p10... fast moving children... flash too slow. help!

I'm trying to buy a camera good for my family photos. I've got a DSC-P10 to try. My first round of shots are terrible! I know I must have a setting out of control!!!

Right now, I push the button... a red light comes on.... it takes a long time to actually take the picture. Children will not freeze for this amount of time.

Please tell me where I've gone wrong... or what I need to change.

Try using slower kids ?

Every camera has to focus, so unless you go really expensive, it's always gonna be a problem. Focus on a spot where you think they will be in a moment and pre-focus (halfway push), so the camera reacts faster.
