How do submit Form 2441 as Turbo tax is stating it will be deleted?

On my w2, box 10, it states $4,500.  My employer advised me to submit Form 2441 in order for child care expenses to be taxed free. However, in TurboTax - it says i'm not eligible b/c someone else can claim me as a dependent and when i click Next - it says Form 2441 will be deleted.  How do i go about completing form 2441?

If you're claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return, you are not eligible for the credit.  If you can't claim the child, then you can't take the credit.

This, from Turbo Tax:

You told us someone can claim you on their tax return. This prevents you from getting to claim anyone --- no matter who they are or how you help them --- as your dependent, according to IRS rules.
