Where do I enter a parent's AGI on a dependent child's return using turbo tax?

Other than acknowledging that they can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return, a dependent's tax return has no connection to the parents' return. If the child filed previously, their prior year AGI may be required as part of the e-filing verification process, but the parents' AGI plays no role.
