I can't set the child div to be the height and width of the parents element


The main problem here is on the #overlay
Despite setting the width and height to be 100%, I can’t get it to be the same width and height as my parents element.

What am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated

The parent element is a flex container with this value:

  padding: 8rem;

So the element is taking 100% of the remaining space, which is not much.

You might accomplish your goal by removing the padding on the parent and setting a fixed height and width on the children’s class, though I can’t guarantee that will solve all the issues. It’s trial and error.
