You need to adapt your equipment and your riding to your children's size and ability. Make sure their bike is the right size (check every 3 months) and check it's in good working condition (check the brakes and tires).

Make sure they wear a helmet (and set a good example by wearing one as well!). Try it on in the the shop before you buy. A good helmet should cover the head properly and shouldn't move about.

Make them ride in front of you and give them clear instructions: don't cross the road without you and always stay within hearing distance.

If you want to put your youngest in a baby seat, make sure you get a decent one, attach it properly and don't forget their helmet either.
