"Receives" and "gets" should both be accepted.

i think receive = 받아 as compared to get = 얻아

받다=to recieve 얻다=to obtain get is just a lazy cover all word that we use in English. it doesn't work that way in korean.

Child or kid should be acceptable

This section is for written language. Kid is informal unless talking about goat children.

Is 얻다 more formal than 받다?
