You can use any theme you want in WordPress to suit your needs. However, while customizing the theme and using plugins it is easy for beginners to break the theme, miss out the simple syntax, etc. A child theme in WordPress allows you to make changes to your website without worrying about breaking the code or causing errors. You can always go back to the parent theme. Also, if you are using a lot of plugins it becomes indispensable to use a child theme because you never know if the plugin is well-written and updated regularly.
