Child (plural: children), or casually kid, is a term used to describe a human between the stages of birth and puberty. Childhood is a time in which humans are in the midst of maturing mentally, emotionally, and physically prior to the developments that take place during adolescence. In this way, support from responsible adult role models, opportunities for interaction and play with peers, as well as formal schooling are all critical during childhood. Children also tend to have fewer rights as adult humans and therefore have more restrictions on legal decision-making and are required to have a legal adult guardian that can provide them with proper care.
