I would agree with filling the hole with a piece of wood with glue like the golf tee that enurdt1 mentioned, or just slivers of a hardwood work good too. Some folks just use match sticks. Another suggestion after you get the hole filled is to do what I do when hanging doors, once the door is plumb and installed, take the middle screw out of each hinge and drive a 3” screw in that place which should go all the way into the door framing. It will hold the door from eventually pulling loose or saging and of course prevent future damage from children.
