Muzzle on Puppy

I have a 4 month old puppy Goldendoodle who is very bitty right now (we are working on this).  I have a 10 year old daughter who does not handle the biting well and starts screaming and running from him.  The puppy, of course, thinks this is just great and bites even worse.  When my daughter has her friends over it gets really bad (they act the same way).  He has already ripped some of the friends clothes (and mine also) and I'm afraid he will break skin.  I'm thinking about purchasing a muzzle to put on him when the kids are over but I'm concerned that this might be too cruel to the puppy.  What are your thoughts?  Will it cause other issues?

Thank you!

I think that things have gone too far when clothes have already been bitten and torn.  
Your daughter needs training too, or you should find another home for the dog.  Your daughter
