    event on child not parent

    I'm trying to place an event on a child and not the parent but it doesn't seem to trigger the event.

    parent.child.buttonMode = true;
    parent.child.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, onMouseOver );
    	private function onMouseOver(evt : MouseEvent) : void
    			trace("child = "+evt.target.name);
    The above event is not getting fired.

    Figured out why it was not firing. There was other children above the child I was targeting. I had to turn off the other children first.

    In the below code I made both the dark_overlay child and the glass child to not except events. that did the trick.

    			item.background.buttonMode = true;
    			item.dark_overlay.mouseEnabled= false;
    			item.glass.mouseEnabled = false
    			item.background.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, onMouseOver );
