Applying force to a child object

I just had a quick question here, I have an dynamic object that I apply force to move, it works, but when I try give the object a parent I can no longer use force to move the object, only dLoc works!

Tried the same thing with linV, but only dLoc movement will move the child object. Is there way to move it with force or linV, or do I have to use dLoc to move a child?

No you don’t need to use dLoc. But you have to enable “Bounds” and “Compound” on the parent object.

Thanks, I’ll remember that, I managed to use dLoc for this situation, but I may need that later.
