Just be ready for the puppy stages.
Biting is normal as the puppy goes through the teething stage.Will bite at anything.
Make sure you have plenty of chew toys such as a kong ,nyla teething rings are great and the nyla ball with the nubs is great as well,NO raw hides as they are bad for them.Buy a container of bitter apple spray ,you can spray things such as coffee table and what not to keep him from chewing on them.They can be hyper pups but aren't must puppies,just wanting to play and get into trouble.Crate training would be best for you,your house and the pup.Something to look into if you haven't used a crate before,most of us here wouldn't have a house to come home to if it wasn't for the crate......lol
I had two pits( who have since passed ) with two children under 5 and never had a problem :D They were nothing but love bugs to all of us. Training BO for me was very easy,they picked up faster then any other dog I have had.
Best of Luck to you

I have a 5 year old daughter, and my pitbull is almost 6 months old - he is awesome with her! They are a very loving breed. I wouldn't suggest ever leaving your children alone with them though, because they do tend to get a little rough when playing - at least mine does. If my daughter is playing with Koda, and he starts getting too rough, all she has to do is say "OWW" and he immediately stops and starts licking her like crazy like he's saying sorry! :D

Marlee amazed me yesterday, a lil' girl walked over (with her mum) bout 2 years old, and lady asked if she could look at the dogs, so i sat Roxy and Marlee got as close as she could to lil' girl and rolled over ....all the mums were like "awww how sweet" but if that had been a bigger kid, she would have jumped up at them lol

Bully breeds are a great choice for a family pet. They are loving of both children and their owners. But they are not for the timid. They require an owner with at least as much persistance as they have if you know what I mean. Bullys can be very bull headed but if you have the patience and the fortitude you really couldn't do much better for your family.

Good luck.
