Listing children processes

I'm trying to compute the total CPU load of an external process and it's
children.  (so I cannot use resource.getrusage)  For the load of the
process I can just grab it from /proc/X/stat.  How do I get the CPU load of
the children processes?  Is there an easy way to get a list of the children
