yeah but that's in a professional context. i wouldn't have thought its frowned upon to refer to one's own spawn as "kids"
I don't care if anyone else's uses kids but I don't, I've always thought it sounded off. I imagined I was the only one who thought so!
I collectively refer to my DSSs and DD as 'the kids'. It seems so formal to call them 'the children'.
We all know that kid technically means a baby goat however in slang English it means a child. Ironically if we want to get technical b!tch means a female dog which I wouldn't find offensive (I love dogs!) if it weren't for the fact that in slang English it means something quite different.
Of course context and tone of voice are also important.

Why would you need to use the term 'kid' when you are referring to your son or daughter? It seems impersonal.
I usually refer to DS as my boy, my little boy, or my son.
I don't have any issue with the use of 'kids' for multiple children.
