Child's income, do I need to file with my return?

My 18-year-old son lives at home and had a job earning $2807 last year.  Do I claim this on my taxes?

You never claim your child's W-2 on your return.  If there were income taxes withheld, he should file a return to get a refund.

Thank you.  So everything else that has to do with him would remain on my return, like his school expenses (he is in college full time)?
