I'm attempting to install the MomPrenuer child them and I get a message saying the theme is broken. I got Genius Framework 1.9.2 installed and activated. The MomPrenuer theme doesn't show up at all. Any suggestions. I copied the message below I got in Appearance\Themes
The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.
MomPrenuer Child Theme
The parent theme is missing. Please install the "genesis" parent theme.
That is intriguing. And I like the slight re-naming of Genesis, that's a good one! 😉
My first thought is that when using Genesis, normal procedure is NOT to activate the Genesis theme itself, you should activate the child theme instead. You could try activating another theme, such as the included Twenty-whatever, and then try installing the Mom theme.
Beyond that, it's possible that your child theme's files didn't make it to the server. You could try re-uploading the child theme, or manually installing it by unzipping the archive and uploading it to /wp-content/themes via FTP.

I don't think all the files were making it to the server. Sent the files via FTP and the theme is showing up now.
