Why is there a 'bir' before "çocuk" and not before 'kadınsın"? Or is the bir just always optional and are both "Sen bir kadınsın ve o bir çocuk." and "Sen kadınsın ve o çocuk." correct as well?

Bro, it is not correct in English, this is why. You can not go literal between languages

I feel like 'that is a child' should be allowed
