Why do I have to enter in line 236 from my 16 year olds return?

If you are a single parent, you are able to claim the eligible dependant credit for your son.  This credit is reduced by your son's net income.  It does not necessarily mean your son is required to submit a tax return, however you still enter on your return the amount that would be his net income.
