Traverse the DOM tree using jQuery to find the children, parents, and other nearby elements of any selected element on the page. Learn how to select an element up the page and reliably locate it's siblings by traversing up the DOM to a parent element and then back down using find. Use additional jQuery methods to filter a list of DOM elements down using find to apply an additional selector to the list, not to filter out elements that do not match a set of criteria and more.
