Just say no if you didn't have a child. Some 19-year-olds do have children, and it is possible for very young children to have investment income (accounts for them can be set up in their name). When investment income belonging to children exceeds a certain threshold, these children can have a filing requirement. TurboTax asks these questions to make sure these rare situations aren't missed.
