Pretty much so, yes.

If you go somewhere that is strictly personal and there is no purpose to the child being with you, then that may not be deductible.

Yes, if there is a business purpose of the trip (bringing the child from school to somewhere to watch the child), it is deductible.

A portion of your home expenses will also be deductible.  TurboTax should walk you through that.
