Not at all.
One of my Fb "friends" referred to my son as "kid" 100% of the time. He would never mention his name just KID. I Unfriended him because of it. My child has a name and it's not KID

I can see where it can sometimes come off as jerky

I don't think the word KID is bad. I think how it is used in a sentance with other words can be mean but not the word itself. My children are kids.

It can seem mean depending on how you use it and the tone, but I say "my kid" all the time.

The term child can be used just as coldly. Any word pertaining to a kid or fruit of your loin if you prefer can be used meanly. It's all about intent.
