|It's a pretty good debate...
Sometimes the Mastiff seems to have problems understanding that a stranger can be a friend of yours. If he doesn't know him, the stranger can't be part of the group... Despite this, they are fully capable of getting used to your new relationships. When a strange person has visited your house a few times, he will accept that his owner has given him permission to enter the house. When a Mastiff becomes familiar with the new person, he will think of him as a friend, too, and treat him likewise.
Some Mastiffs are very friendly with everyone, some are more of the "elective" kind, while others do not like to meet strangers at all. But with most Mastiffs, meeting strangers is no problem at all.
Personally, I think it is definitely about how the dog is brought up but is it worth taking the chance? Especially with such a huge breed and young children around?
Is she very good at raising dogs?
