You will have to print your return out on paper and file it by mail. It takes the IRS 4 months or more to process an amended return, so their records will not be updated in time for you to e-file before the April deadline. Print your return and file it by mail on or before April 18, 2017.

You can't e-File in any case because your son's  incorrect return will prevent that. Both returns will have to go by US Mail.
