There is not much difference. Jij carries more emphasis. "Jij bent een kind" might imply that you are a child BUT I am not. "Je" is more casual and carries no emphasis. Check out more info here.

Kind = child. Can it also mean 'kid,' less formally, as in: You are a kid?

I think Jij bent een kind should be accepted on the "Type what you hear" there is NO WAY we can determine from a robot speaker whether they are emphasizing you vs me or someone else, or the casual "you"... so both should be accepted. As of this writing... they don't accept "jij bent een kind."
