.home { color: red; width: 200px; margin: auto; background-image: ulr(../Mom & Dad-website/Images/Blue 2.jpg) }

I am trying to add a background-image to paragraph text. The folder is located outside css folder in Mom & Dad-website folder, so don't know what the problem is. I can also upload the image when I do it in my html index page, using the same path as above.

Try this:

    color: red;
    width: 200px;
    margin: auto;
    /* You misspelled URL here, forgot the semicolon at the end, and I think you need to escape your spaces with a \ */
    background-image: url(../Mom\ &\ Dad-website/Images/Blue 2.jpg);

You misspelled "url" as "ulr". :-)
