Hi, I've been using Wordpress for over a year now but I never did understand what a parent child theme is. I tried reading the explanation in wordpress.org but it just went over my head.

So far I know that you use a child theme to modify a parent theme. But why do you need to do that? Can I not just modify the parent theme?

I'm looking at buying a premium wordpress theme that says it supports child pages. So is that the same as a child theme? What do I need it for?
