Most cartoon voices don't even sound like regular people. Why would children actually sound like children?

Adults

I envy adults who have cartoony sounding voices

As long as they do a decent job, I'm not bothered.

Definitely prefer actual children! It just sounds more natural & realistic than adult female voice actors try to sound cutesy. No adults can imitate the innocence of an actual children's voice

One of the best thing in Sweetness & Lightning is Tsumugi's voice actor, Rina Endo, a 10 year-old little girl who did an outstanding job (She also voiced Hina in Barakamon). She's so adorable as Tsumugi! I can't imagine having a female adult VA to voice her, it just won't feel the same and the show won't be as awesome as it is now.

Barakamon is one of my favorite anime. I really adore the interaction between Handa & Naru, a precocious 6 year-old girl voiced by an actual child: 11 year-old Suzuko Hara. I really love her as Naru! She brings life to Naru's character. Go ahead and compare the original Japanese version to the English-dubbed version of Barakamon where Naru & Hina were voiced by adult female VAs, then you'll see what I mean. The Japanese version is much, much better!

Old men. All voices, an old man. Your character's a 10 year old gir? Old man.

Obvious answer: a voice actor.

I chose "No preference" because as long as it fits, I don't mind.
But it probably is better for adults to do the work since they'll have a better understanding of what they have to do, and more experience doing it.
