|I read that young children are often scary for dogs because they sound like a wounded animal, yet their energy is excitement and chaos. So it confuses most dogs.
I don't really have an answer for you. Maybe someone else will Try posting this in the Behavior section.
For now - maybe keep your dog gated off or crated. Not as a punishment, but to keep both dog and child safe. Maybe for some reason that child makes your dog feel threatened or scared (most little dogs bite out of fear).
I hope other have some advice on how to socialize your pup with young children. Some dogs, if not properly socialized as a puppy (you had no control or knowledge about this), will always struggle with very young children.
