There is lots of talk concerning the need for model releases. Often the verbal approval of a parent is sufficient but if you wish to put this photo on a business card, in your literature or in your book of photos for the child to choose from you really need to get a legal release. There are many approaches. This is the example shared by Shannon Fennell from Canada. You are welcome to use hers or modify it to your liking. When in doubt seek legal advice as we are not legal experts.
