jQuery Question Select the parent instead the child

I would like to know if there is any chance of selecting only the parent div instead its child. An easy example would be this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<body onclick="myFunction(event)">
<div style="border: solid black 2px">

<p>Click on a paragraph. An alert box will alert the element
that triggered the event.</p>

<p><strong>Note:</strong> The target property returns the element that
triggered the event, and not necessarily the eventlistener's element.</p>
function myFunction(event) {

What I want is simple, I want to click in the div, (does not mind if it is on the p labels) and recieve the msg that div has been clicked.
By now if I click on p labels I am getting p msg.

The fact is that I am trying to select the div instead the p label only, for example to change all its color. Thank you all.
