jQuery - Target the Parent of an Element Using jQuery

What’s happening:
I have run into this bug with the jQuery module on FCC before… I have the correct code, but for some reason it never registers as completed. I am being asked to turn the background-color parent container of #target1 red. I am doing this.

Your code so far

  $(document).ready(function() {
    // $("#target1").css("color", "red");
    $("#target1").prop("disabled", true);
    $("#target1").parent().css("background-color", "red");  

<!-- Only change code above this line -->

  <div class="container-fluid">
    <h3 class="text-primary text-center">jQuery Playground</h3>
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col-xs-6">
        <div class="well" id="left-well">
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target1">#target1</button>
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target2">#target2</button>
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target3">#target3</button>
      <div class="col-xs-6">
        <div class="well" id="right-well">
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target4">#target4</button>
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target5">#target5</button>
          <button class="btn btn-default target" id="target6">#target6</button>
