i know about the relationship just trying to filter the relationship was the problem just decided on this approach.

public function hasChildCount($count, $catid)
            $products = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($catid)
                ->addAttributeToFilter('type_id', array('eq' => 'grouped'));

            foreach ($products as $product) {
                $associatedProducts = $product->getTypeInstance(true)->getAssociatedProducts($product);
                $countProducts = count($associatedProducts);
                if(($count == 5 &&  $count >= $countProducts ))
                    $ids[] = $product->getId();
                }elseif($count == $countProducts)
                    $ids[] = $product->getId();
                // Do something with $associatedProducts

            return $ids;

and then in the actual attribute to filter

 array('entity_id'=>array('in',$idsIn ));

Magento is save the relation between grouped product ant it related child products at database table catalog_product_link.

In this table,there relation is build with field( link_type_id=3)

Now,if i add new column which is add count of child product then it would properly work
