WordPress child theme allows you change the functionality of the theme without having to edit the original/parent theme template files. If you plan to making any customization, we recommend to create a child theme instead of editing the theme template files. Since the child theme is stored separately, you don't need to redo the changes next time you upgrade the theme.
There's a plugin you can use that will create a child theme from within the WordPress dashboard: http://wordpress.org/plugins/child-theme-configurator/ or you can download Shopy blank child theme.
