Hello Sarah! Well, the first step in medical school, psychiatry residency, and then specializing in child psychiatry. Honestly, a lot of medical schools look for a well-rounded applicant. Do not fall into the trap of feeling like you "should major in X or Y." Instead, follow your passion. Do what you love and excel within it. Your training in child psychiatry will be what you need to do that job well. So, for now, study what you want. Be well-rounded. If you want to learn more about children, I'd highly recommended developmental psychology, etc.
