what is main element talking about children?

do i have to literally type children? but is not working…thanks earlier, "main " issue was resolved…now i don’t understand this “as children” or “children” issue.

ok, take a deep breath.

do you see the list of checkmarks and the one x on the left side?

everything is checked except the one that says “the main element should have two children…”

if you look at your main and p tags, there are three paragraphs (these are children of main).

delete one of the paragraphs and you should be able to move forward!
