Japanese Kanji for Kids

The word “子供(こども – kodomo)” is most widely used for representing young kid. And the word “子供達(こどもたち – kodomotachi)” is a plural version of “子供”. (The kanji character “達(たち – tachi)” is used for expressing multiple creatures).

And for expressing boys, we use “男児(だんじ – danji)” and for expressing girls, we use “女児(じょじ – joji)”. The Kanji “男” means male and the kanji “女” means female.

And I think usually we use the word “幼児(ようじ – youji)” for the English word “toddler”.

And for baby we mainly use the word “赤ちゃん(あかちゃん – akachan)” in conversation but also “赤ん坊(あかんぼう – akanbou)” and “赤子(あかご – akago)” are popularly used for the word “baby”.
