    The off color appearance of your photos might very well be a WB issue. Try picking the WB option that more closely matches your light. As far as taking photos of a child in a dark room you either have to increase the light with a flash or open window or more room lights, or use a very fast lens like f1.4 or f1.8, or attempt the impossible and ask the child to sit still for a bit.

    Patrice is right, also if you can, shoot in raw because you can easily fix that WB issue when you process the pictures on your computer. To fix the blur issue, I would use a tripod or use a flash.
