I don't know if this applies to kids or not, but in my experience with other dogs, if there is a little one that can't defend itself enough, and I step in and tell my dog not to bug it, my dog will stop. It's not only the role of the alpha to be able to take stuff away; it's also about deciding who will be allowed to play within the pack and who will be bullied. If you tell your dogs consistently that they can't act that way to your kids and correct them firmly every time, they'll get the message. Don't depend on a child to set things straight. You are the leader.
