I am writing some sentences.

I want to be a nurse, I want to be a doctor...", is there anyone in the world who has not said these words when they were [kids / young / your suggestion]?

  • "They" in your sentence is singular, so "a kid" not "kids" is suggested. – David Washington Jun 16 '17 at 10:00

is there anyone in the world who has not said these words when they were a kid?
is there anyone in the world who has not said these words when they were young?
is there anyone in the world who has not said these words when they were growing up?

all three have the meaning

at an early stage in life
