Noob Question, how do I edit the child layers when there is only one parent layer controling them?

Please bear with me, I'm totally new.

 

As you can see, this control layer controls many layers... now I want to edit the animation of these layers but the "Control layer" only gives me 3 controls: Flare position, Flare size, and Text size...

 

And when I go see each one of those layers, there's nothing much in it.. other than some layer styles and stuff. How do I edit the "animation" on each of the child layers?

There appears to be no actual "animation". It's all baked into the footage files bar some color corrections and glow effects. if you were hoping to manipulate the particle effects, then the buzzer goes *ooomph*. This is a no-no. Otherwise all layers will dutiufully appear with their properties editable (as far as available) once you disable thje shyguy icon in the timeline. And please, do read the help on the basics. AE is far from intuitive when it comes to those nasty details.
