I have 2 tables: people (id, name) children (id, parents_id, child_id) parents_id = people.id and child_id = people_id also So how I make a relationships in Rails? And how can all search: Children.find(:all, :conditions => ["parents.name LIKE 'Clin%' ???? Or how??? And what if I want to add new child. Parents name is in people table, but childs not, so how I do?

Sounds like a many to many relationship, in which case you need to declare has_and_belongs_to_many on both people and children. The relationship then works through a join table. If you did this, you'd need to re think your model a little and your find and add problems would be different. Martin On Jan 26, 9:18 am, James B. <email@example.com>
