It is possible to have Steam Family Sharing set up so me and my child can both play the same game at the same time? As of now it says:

An error occurred while updating Red Faction Guerilla Steam Edition (shared library locked)

Is there a possible fix or am I stuck with it?

From the stream FAQs page:

To enable Family Library Sharing, first be sure you >have Steam Guard security enabled via Steam >Settings > Account in the Steam Client. Then enable the sharing feature via Settings > Family, (or in Big Picture mode, Settings > Family Library >Sharing,) where you'll also authorize specific computers and users to share.

So, just make sure you flow the steps. I would assume you missed enabling Family Library Sharing.

    Family Library Sharing does not allow 2 players to play at the same time, that is what the question asks
