A kid is any child, either a boy or girl or a baby goat. It's slang but in common usage.
A boy is a male child probably ten years or under, but not always. "The boys are going to the bar." It's a slang for men getting together to have fun. It's casual not literal. (You can substitute girl/s for boy/s and female for male.)
A child is a person, male or female, usually under ten, but it's flexible too. My 16 year old is still my child but she is not a child.
Children is simply the plural (more than one) of child.
Someone usually under the age of 13.
Informal, somewhat equivalent to child. Can also be used to address someone much younger than you if you want to call attention to their age. Can also be used to refer to young goats.
plural of child.
A male child.
