Kids can't give up US citizenship till they are 18. Without denouncing US citizenship they can't get Indian Citizenship. You have to wait till the kid is 18.

And the parents can't do that for the kids, either.

Once the child turns 18 the child can make his or her own decision.

Ofcourse the child is not a child any more when he turns 18.

Well... I'm not saying you're wrong, but...

While a child can mean a minor, according to Merriam-Webster "child" can also mean "a son or daughter of human parents", i.e., regardless of age. Language is messy 😉
