wordpress child theme issue

Hi, We just updated our Alexandria theme and the child theme seems to have become disconnected. we have two paths one re-connect the child theme so that it looks correct or two revert back to the original theme version.

we would prefer to reconnect the child theme but are not sure how to do that.

if that isn't possible we would like to know the steps to restore the original 1.0 version of the theme.

Thanks for the help

Shouldn't matter.

Add the child theme URI and also make sure the import statement to the parent theme CSS is correct.
