family picture..1 person overexposed HELP

I took a "family picture" for a friend (all her kids happen to be home at the same time) problem.. the 2 yr old is overexposed in the front of the group (the only way we could get her to cooperate was in the front on her horse) I don't have a clue how to fix this.. can anyone help?

Use light painting.
add a new layer, fill with medium gray,
make that layer (soft light)
go over it with burn tool , then back off till it looks right.

There are many ways to achieve the same effect. I did a Highlights/shadowws mask and a unsharp mask.

Another easy way is to select the kid's face and shirt and float it (make a new layer from selection), and multiply it. Then set your opacity to the desired level to bring shape and weight back into the face.
