"ein" is for masculine nouns like "Kind" while "eine" is for feminine nouns like "Frau"
In many languages genders are incoherently assiged to nouns depending on how the noun is associated and the behavior associated with the word.
An appropriate note to place here is that the word "Mädchen" is a nuter noun and will use "ein" not "eine"
If your still confused the I suggest reading the Wikipedia article about gramatical genders in nouns here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_gender
"Ein" sounds similar to English "rind" without the r or d. Kind sounds similar to English "kilt" with an n instead of an l. Mann has a vowel sort similar to that in don, but a bit more foreward.
Note: These are only approximations, and I speak American English, so if you're not from the US (even if you are, it's a big country) these may not be the best examples for you. The only surefire way to learn pronunciation is by listening to native speakers and trying to copy theirs.
