Normally the whole purpose of a Parent child relationship is to be able to edit the relationship so as to add lookup fields.  In that way you do not need to push any buttons to copy then down, they would just always be there automatically.  Does that solve your problem?

What QuickBaseCoach says is correct. However, relationships can get tricky so if you're still having trouble I recommend you go to Help > Manage Support Cases > + New Support Case so one of our customer care specialists can take a look at your app with you to figure this out.
