This is not a GCC question, it's a general C++ question, so is off-topic here.

Of course you can't convert shared_ptr<Parent> to Child, they are
totally unrelated. You can't even convert Parent* to Child, one is a
pointer and one is not.

Maybe you mean static_pointer_cast<Child>(e) which converts
pointer-to-Parent to pointer-to-Child.
