If you son was still living with you and did not provide more than half of his own support, since he is under 19 years old, you can still claim him as a dependent on your return. 

The income from babysitting will need to be reported as self-employment income.  You will need to upgrade to TurboTax Self-Employed to report this income on Schedule C.
