I previously ran a trailer, I had to uprate a few components though; such as the wheels/tyres, hitch (both on the bike and the arm), and give it long-travel suspension.
She was getting too tall for it though, legs cramped.

Now I have her on the bike with me, and we're both far happier. This meant lengthening the bike with a custom mainframe.
It's far better for me to ride, and she much prefers it too...

Yes I custom built mine, and she's only one child, but in my experience your best bet by a mile is to get them on your bike with you.
There are various ways of going about this, with all manner of cargo bikes available for two or more kids.
