You don't need TTL to photograph kids running around at a party. You just need enough remote flash power to light the whole room , e.g a couple of big cheap manual only flashes in opposite corners bouncing off the ceiling on full power. Then you set your camera's pop-up low just to do some shadow fill at the camera settings you've set. No TTL, and shots which look completely naturally lit.
