    Not all of the CSS from the parent theme, no. The only CSS you want in the child's stylesheet is the custom changes that you want on your site.

    So you are adding new, custom, CSS to your child theme's stylesheet? Sorry but I'm getting a little confused here...

    The only stylesheet you should be editing is the one belonging to your child theme.
