When you switch to a Child theme, your old options don’t go anywhere. They’re just now being accessed and saved with a different options id.

Reference: http://dev.themeblvd.com/tutorial/saving-theme-options-and-switching-themes/

So, if you want, you can just change the option ID that options are saved at from your Child theme’s functions.php. Just set it to match the current “alyeska” ID generated from the default theme’s name.

function my_option_id( $option_id ) {
    $option_id = 'alyeska';
    return $option_id;
}
add_filter( 'themeblvd_option_id', 'my_option_id' );

So, in other words, by having this in your Child theme, if you were to theoretically be switching back and forth between Child and Parent theme the theme options will remain the same.
