My mother tongue term for child is lakwa .

Traditionally it is a person of a tender age,still depending on parents. It is also used by parents to refer to their offspring at whichever age to show ownership. Generally one is a child until initiation believed to be bridge to adulthood.

Religion wise every believer in God is His child. Child also refers to new believers in Christ who still require guidance.

Legally any person below 18years is a child.

A child in my mother tongue is mwana.

Traditionally a child is any one who is under the care and supervision of parents and society members and therefore not expected to make independent decisions in many issues. Their decision making is guided.

In religious circles, a child is one who due to young age , cannot differentiate between right and wrong, good or evil.

Legally , a child is any person who has not attained the age of eighteen.
