I agree that we should all keep up and try to be sensitive about our use of words. I think there are some informal contexts in which "kids" is sort of all right. Most of the families with, er, children that grew up with our children called theirs and ours kids. I do share your dislike of that expression used for the programme title, though. Catchiness bordering on the offensive can jar.
