120 year old house

My house wiring is anywhere from old - old to 1 year old. Downstairs is old on the exterior walls but the interior walls are all grounded. I am remodeling the bathroom for the secound time and I want to protect it as best I can. I have 6 grandchildren. Is it safer to have a GFIC breaker where they can not reset it, or just an outlet? The bathroom will be on it's own circuit.

I have an un-attached garage. I saw in another post that they require special requirements. What are they?

Neither is any safer. I like a local GFI better, as opposed to a breaker.
