If I show you a neighborhood in Paris, can you tell me how safe it is for a family with kids?

We are staying just south of this
metro station on rue Marcadet. We've already booked the place, but now we're finding information from some sources (not all) that suggests that this may not be a good neighborhood. We're idiots for not realizing this earlier - but it is what it is. We probably could change things at this point if we really decided we wanted to.
We are a family with three kids (youngest is 11). We look and talk like Americans. We want to fear for our safety exactly zero times while we're there.
Is anyone familiar enough with the city and with this neighborhood to advise?
