To find elements within another, use a contextual selector. Try this:

$("p", this).css({ /* ... */ });

Or you can concatenate the id of the parent - although this is a little ugly IMO:

$("#" + this.id + " p").css({ /* ... */ });

Or you can use find() on the parent element:

$(this).find("p").css({ /* ... */ });

Any of the above will work for you, although the second example is pretty ugly and should be avoided. Always use the this reference directly where possible.
