Deductions & credits

I have a similar question. TurboTax told me I received the $2,000 credit, when in reality I only received $1,000 to my refund amount. I figured this out by deleting my daughters info and watched the amount decrease by exactly $1K. She's almost 2 now and I checked the "months lived" also and its correct. My tax liability is still definitely high enough to be able to be reduced by the full $2,000. My income is well below the $400K threshold for married couples. The only thing I've come across so far is something about being self employed. I don't understand what that has to do with this credit. My wife has a VERY small business, very new, and it was actually negative this year. Im not sure why that would cause me to lose some of the CTT...
