Here is a great article about Small children and pets. It doesn't really talks about Bunnies ,but in my opinion it applies completely, even more so because Bunnies need gentle Care and Kids are not always gentle.
The article below is a courtesy from Vpi Pet Insurance, it reads:
Rabbits are very fragile animals and must be handled very carefully. This is one reason that they may not make the best pets for small children. Contrary to popular belief, you shouldn't pick up a rabbit by his ears. Doing so can not only damage
his ears but if the rabbit thrashes, he can very easily break his back.
To pick up your rabbit, place one hand underneath the front of the rabbit and
the other hand underneath his back side, lifting him carefully with both hands.
In addition, a rabbit’s nails are very sharp.
When holding a rabbit, make sure to hold his rear feet with one hand to prevent scratching. “We don’t let the kids pick up the bunny. They are only allowed to pet her with us supervising,”
said Elemes, a mother of kids ages 8, 5 and 2. Bunnies do indeed enjoy being petted. They clean themselves around their eyes, ears, nose, top of head and back, so all of these areas are generally safe to pet.
If you read this and have questions on my opinion just text or call me .
