Hi Karina,

You can find the style.css file in the project downloads from the How to Make a Child video: http://treehouse-code-samples.s3.amazonaws.com/WordPress/wp5.3.3-make-a-website-with-wordpress.zip

This link will automatically start the download of a zip folder which will contain the style.css document. We hope this helps!

Thanks, I just ended up copying and pasting it but replacing the contents with what the codex said and modifying. I wish the videos were more clear and didn't skip so much. I appreciate your help.

I am going to assume you are talking about where he says "you may copy this file from the project downloads and paste it into your new child themes folder". Near the "Teacher's Notes", you should see "Downloads". From there you can download the project file. Within that zip file is a "style.css" file which will have everything that he includes in the video. I also added the file contents to the Teacher's Notes.
