you cn change.. but better way is to loosely couple both the parent and the child of the parent by using custom events/event based communication.
so, use custom events in this case.
oops.. looks like i've already helped you on this.. .. lol! still struggling?

Still struggling, but I keep getting this same answer - custom events. I'm going to have to learn how to manage events better or else I'll be dead with this rather large application I'm producing.
Well, I'l give chance to someone else next time you post the same kind of question I'll remember your name Doug!
if you hve time, please refere messaging feature in parsley framework.(very good for loosely coupled architecture for inter component commnication).
