    Every dog is different and NO DOG should ever be left alone with a child. My personal experience, my pit mix and my Am Bully are amazing with children. I have many neices and nephews (Eight to be exact:eek::lol:) and they are all best buds. typically I feel these do make good dogs for people with kids however kids need taught the right way to treat a dog and the dog needs to be supervised at all times when around kids.

    What you and others should take into a great amount of consideration and precaution is that each dog varies no matter the breed. Nobody will know your dog better than you will, I would just highly advise that you monitor how well your dog takes to children but never leave the two alone period. I think what is also highly important here is to teach children how to correctly approach a dog and how to pet them and how not grab, kick, etc.

    With all the heavy said, I do see most pitbulls as awesome family dogs. My own pitbull girl is not necessarily HA but she can be protective of me she is especially not fond of strangers. She is fine with my entire family however and some of my cousins are much younger but they're not fond of her haha :p

    I do think apbts & bully breeds are great to have around kids, I have never had 1 issue with any of my dogs around kids. (Other than the wagging tail smackin like a whip)
    Hell, my dog Adores kids, To him they are fun little people who play and hug him. He even likes the little ones! Do I leave them alone? No I don't. ever.
    I know my dog, but I am not stupid enough to take that risk.

    Plus, I want to make sure the Kids are not gonna be pokin him in the eyes and whatnot.
    1 kid pulled his ears pretty good & I stopped him right away, my dog did what he should - nothing.
    That kid knows now that won't happen again. I wish all parents taught their kids how to behave around animals.

    Staffordshire Bull Terrier all the way when it comes to kids. Apbt... they are ok, but I have never found them to be quite as good with kids. Still better than many other breeds though.

    While I do think they are good around kids, young and old. (If the dog and kids are properly trained) I do think there are breeds out there who are better. My girl Eagle was raised with my nephew. I now teach my now 2 year old nephew how to train the dog.
    People are going to judge the dog no matter what. Those outside can't tell your dog is good with kids. When I'm outside with my nephew and I see another dog I move him to the other side. Everyone doesn't know every dog. Just like when I'm out with my dogs and I see another kid I move the dog to the other side to give the child/parent a sense of comfort.
    I never leave a kid alone with a dog. Even if my nephews sitting there playing with the dog I leave either the kid or the dogs stepping out the room with me. I trust my dog yea but I know accidents can happen and ill never put any kid in a situation that it can happen.

    All dogs have teeth all dogs can bite. Parent who yank their kids away are just being smart and teaching their children you should not pet a strange dog. None of my dogs would ever bite a child, but they have never really been around children, if a child wanted to pet one of my dogs then first ask parents permission then have the dog go to sit/stay. Keep it short and sweet and move on, but then again it is not like I am running around all over town, pet smart or dog parks with my dogs

    You can't really judge a breed as a whole on this issue. I mean any breed. Its just not fair to the breed. Granted some breeds have the tendancy to as a whole be better with kids than others. You really have to look at the individual dog. In my honest opinion I think any dog is capable of being good with kids under the right circumstances,
