How do I enter a childs income?

You would not claim your dependent's Form W-2 or earned income on your own tax return. 

The dependent will need to file their own return if they are required to file, or if they would like to receive any refund that they are due.   If the dependent files their own return, they will need to indicate that they can be claimed as a dependent by someone else. To determine if the dependent is required to file a tax return to report their income, please see the following TurboTax FAQ:

To file an additional return using TurboTax Online, you will need to create a new account.  Please see the following TurboTax FAQ for instructions on how to start another return using TurboTax Online https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574
