i taught this stuff for 15 years and held NRA Instructor rating for three disciplines Rifle, Pistol, and Shotgun for 20 and what Bigslug said is very true. If you ingrain those first few rules in your mind where they are automatic, you automatically make yourself about 100% safer.
Some of this sounds repetitious and over done, but the whole thing about it is to make it part of your daily agenda that you have it so ingrained that you just do it without thinking. If everyone was on that level, accidental gunshot wounds and deaths would become almost nil.

My children insist me on giving them my Glock gun which I'm very afraid to give them. I don't think they have proper education about firearms safety and so they may accidentally hurt themselves. They are under 10 right now.

Welcome, my kids started with .22 single action revolvers and were proficient with them with regards to safe handling and shooting before we moved on to .22 pistols, Glock seems like a big first step for a 10 y/o, YMMV.
