This is not required for academic purposes, only proper citation is required and there are accepted protocols for that (and have been for years).

One issue here is the age of the child, though.  I believe the child is in primary school.  Typically this is well below the citation threshold, as stated above, on cognitive levels.  Beginning in middle school (or about 4th grade/age 9 at advanced schools) light guage citation protocols can be introduced successfully w/o overloading the students in academic arcana.  Full bore citation protocols usually can wait until high school/upper level secondary.
