Why does my sons return say he qualifies to be a dependent on someone else's return when he doesn't?

Turbo selected the option he qualifies to be claimed as an deduction on someone else's tax forms. When we try to claim him and he doesn't qualify (25 yrs. old and made $8000.) I am not able to change to change his form so he can claim himself.
