What was the reason she snapped? Did you come up behind her, surprise her? scare her? And was she actually trying to bite? or warn you off?

This concerns me.....There is a vast difference in children's understanding
between a 7 and 10 year old, and a 3 and 4 year old.....Children that young do not understand the body language that dogs display (a lot of adults dont either) and if she snapped at you, I would have to say, unfortunately, she is not safe around children that young....

She would need extensive socialization with your children, and could NEVER
be trusted alone with them. No dog should ever be left alone with a child,
but especially a dog that has snapped at someone already. It really all depends on what made her snap the first time....
