I am not sure where you heard this, but a particular breed doesn't not like children, a dog not raised around children may have a difficult time adjusting to them. I would ask the person you are planning to get a belgian shepherd malinios from if it has been raised around children. I also do not think that you would have a problem either way with a child that is 13 due to the size of the child..typically you want to keep smaller children and ANY dog supervised when playing together.

Your Belgian Malinois needs to understand that everybody in the family is a higher ranking hierarchy, if she/he does, no problem at all even for baby's

My Malinois is great with my kids. I have a 4 year old and a 6 year old. She does tend to heard them if they get too far from home, however, she does this by pushing her nose against the kids backs, not by nipping. I have had her since she was a puppy and she was raised as one of the family, and that's how she sees herself.
