Default 4 mos old puppy nipping at kids.

We've had our puppy since he was 8 weeks old. I have been including both of my kids in his training of sit, stay, leave it, down and they have done great. Rocky listens to them when treats are involved.

The problem is at times if they pass him he'll nip at them especially my 5 year old. Recently my daughter has been catching nips on the hands when she tries to pet him. This wasn't bothering me because I know it's normal for a puppy to mouth people especially while teething.

What worries me is today Rocky did a low growl and nipped at my 7 year old. I've been reading up and trying everything. Has anyone gone through this? If so do they grow out of it?
