minor change to code worked for me:

        <div
            id="parrent"
            style="border: 1px solid red; width:200px; height:200px;"
            onmouseout="if (!this.contains(event.toElement))forMouseOut('parrent');"            
        >

PS Your script should go inside the HEAD of the HTML code.
