Shouldn't we say "children" instead of "kids"?

Since the term kid is so widely used and has been for as long as I can remember (and I am not a spring chicken) it would be acceptable. Throughout history, words have been adopted because of its continual use and become part of the language and are then included in the dictionaries. Many words in most language originate in this way. According to dictionary.com kid is an informal term for a child or young person, therefore making it correct and appropriate to use.
