I'm sorry this is happening - without seeing what is going on in person there is no way anyone can say what is the trigger for the snapping, and whether your dog can be reliable around your son or not.
For now I would keep your boy and dog separated, and see if you can find a behaviorist for a consult who may be able to help you out. The way I see it, either the dog does not know his place in the family and is trying to correct your son for what he feels is inappropriate behaviour for an underling, or he is simply unpredictable and a liability.
A behaviorist will be able to observe the family dynamics and determine which issues are at play here.
