Hand Brakes for a 16" Coaster Brake Bike

We recently got my son a 16" Specialized Hotrock. The bike comes with a coaster brake, but I would like to replace it with a rear handbrake if possible. There are no brake bosses, but there is a hole on the seat stays brace.

Are there any option out there?

If it is a hole in the bracing between the seatstays, then perhaps a BMX u-brake would work. Not sure with a 16" wheel, you'd have to measure it.
