Can i claim head of household even if i dont add my child as a dependent

How do I change the qualifying child information? Why is it picking up the child that I'm not claiming, if I have two other children that I am claiming?

Yes. If the child lived in your home all year, then you can claim him or her as a nondependent for head of household purposes. Please view the Turbo Tax FAQ below for more information about the requirements for head of household filing status.
