Yep, that's how it's done. You only need to include those components in 
children which are going to be rendered the next time the component 
implementing children is rendered. (E.g. if you have html render: 
aComponent within the rendering code you need to include it) A call 
actually replaces the component that calls another with the called 
component (until the called component answers).
