I wouldn’t really delete the theme because your widgets will be messed up and have to redo them and anything else you setup. Because even leaving the child theme in, you will more likely lose everything once you remove the parent theme because the child theme inherits the parent. If you are having issues with permissions, then this is something you should take up with your host’s support and find out what is happening. You should have full access with your FTP.
With our premium themes, we offer access to site documentation, video tutorials and timely support. Even if you have just started on WordPress, our support staff have the patience to help you create appealing sites gracefully.
