I do think that they are children but my friend said that she doesn't think so. What do you think?

I'd use "children" for kids under 13.1

Any one under 12, I consider a child.
Over 13, I consider a teenager because they have thoughts they are very adult like and more complexed---(especially when they become an older teenager age 16 and up).
Children to me are innocent, and play with toys.
They don't think about things in the way teenagers do.
I don't consider any one 13-18 a child.
Child to me is in reference to someone that is practically a baby from hindsight.1
