    Hi, is there a reason you avoided the more typical @import url("../parent-theme/style.css"); to import your parent theme css file?

      Hi! While @import definitely works, WordPress recommends the use of wp_enqueue_style because it’s faster. Here’s why: With @import, the parent’s stylesheet is loaded only after the child’s stylesheet has been downloaded and parsed. With wp_enqueue_style, however, both stylesheets are loaded in parallel.

      Nevertheless, you will be seeing the use of @import in my next screencast because it requires fewer keystrokes! :)
