When to use manual focus in a DSLR?

Ever since I got my prime lens AF-S 35mm f/18G I have got a couple of out of focus shots in portraits.

I have switched off my auto focus assist light when shooting low light photos of my kids. I find that the Auto focus is unable to focus at large apertures and does not snap the moment when I want it to.

In fact, if forced, it gives out of focus pictures. The best thing to do in low light with large apertures is to switch to manual focus.
