Default US citizen w/ U.K. children living in UK

Hello! Hoping you all could shed some advice. I’m an American citizen living legally in the U.K. to my British partner and our two British born children. We are planning on making our first trip to the US soon and I have successfully applied for the U.K. passports for their British passports. I have 2 questions:

1. My American coworker in the same situation said her children has both US and UK passports because it’s safer to travel into the US on a US passport and back on their U.K. one. She said they could be denied entry if not travelling on these? I was under the impression I didn’t need to apply for their US passports if I didn’t want to immediately?

2. She said I must also apply for their social security numbers as there is new legislation being passed that says every American citizen must register their children or be fined up to $6k?
