Re: kitten hissing!
He's a tiny scared little baby. Marie is on target....he needs a nice quiet room for himself to get used to his new home a little at a time. Allow him to get used to you and trust you before subjecting him to kids and dogs. It may only take a couple days, maybe a couple weeks.
And example I can give you was Holly...I brought her home at 12 weeks. She came from a breeder where she had plenty of socialization with people and pets. When I brought her home she dove under the bed and would only come out when I was in the room. As soon as I headed towards the doors, she went straight for the bed. Within a day or so, so was comfortable in the room. And it took another day or so and she was showing signs of wanting to get out of the room.
Give this baby some time, don't rush him. I know it's difficult to keep kids away from a new kitten, but you need to do it for a while.
