Effect scale only

Is there a way to change the scale values of an object without having to change the object’s shape/size

E.g.
I would like to make my object’s scale values back to 1, however it must still be able change as it will become the parent object and control the scales of others. The scale values of 1 will maek the calculations easier

Thank you

With the object selected, Control A > Apply Scale and Location.

Thank you, that solves my problem
