Success (or not) stories with kid reactivity

I'd like to hear people's experiences with their dogs and reactivity toward children. Were you able to train it out, did they mature out of it, how do you manage it if not?

Our boy is 10 months and has had this issue since he was a few months old. No negative experiences with children that we're aware of (got him at 9 weeks old). We've worked with a trainer, done lat/desensitization which was successful but we've had a recent relapse (slacking on the training due to weather is what I suspect) where he has begun barking and growling at children again.

So, I'd like to hear what has worked for people and to what degree and/or your techniques on management.
