Childhaven’s new Triple P: Positive Parenting Program website uses a WordPress Child Theme.

A WordPress child theme inherits the functionality of its parent theme. A child theme is the safest and easiest way to modify a theme, whether you want to make small changes or extensive changes.

Benefits of Child Themes

  • With a child theme, you can update the parent theme and retain any theme changes. If you modify an existing theme and it is updated, your changes will be lost.
  • It can speed up development time, saving you money.
  • Child Themes are simpler and easier to understand than custom themes.
