You do not enter a dependent child's earned income from wages reported on W-2 on your tax return.  If the total earned income reported on the W-2(s) is less than $6,300 and the child has no other type of income, then the child does not have to file a tax return to report the income.  

If there were taxes withheld from the income then they may want to file a tax return to get the taxes withheld refunded.  If they do file a tax return then make sure that they indicate on the tax return that they can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return.
