"We help a child."

"Ajutăm un copil" because it is not a specific child. But with articulate copilul, we would need 'differential object marking' with "pe" like:

"Îl ajutăm pe copilul"

Is that reasoning correct?

shouldnt it be Îi ajutăm pe copilul since it is a dative clause and not accusative? or why would we use Îl like in accusative clause in this case
