Child Theme Fatal Error

I wanted to create a child theme on my new Wordpress site.

I followed the instructions on the first part of this site: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

After doing everything AFTER "How to Create a Child Theme" and before "Template Files", I'm getting the following error message:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare twentyfifteen_widgets_init() (previously declared in /home/username/public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen-child/functions.php:142) in /home/username/public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen/functions.php on line 141

(Here, I'm replacing my actual username with the word "username")

I'm not sure really where to start. I followed the directions to a T and am even using the same theme...
