I do not recommend to use glue traps or any mouse trap where children can have direct access. If you place it somewhere that they cannot get to it, then that is a "good practice". If children or pets get direct access to glue boards, it will be a mess. The glue is very sticky and not water soluble. It can only be removed with oil (mineral oil, peanut butter, etc) or glue remover. The glue will stick to them and could possibly cause suffocation if the glue trap where placed directly over their mouth.
Other than that, there is no off-gassing or anything that could hurt them by breathing.
