parenting curve shapes to joints not working

For my rig i'm trying to parent the shape of my curve to my joint (using parent -r -s). This normally works how i want it, but in this case when i click my shape (not the curve itself, the shape under it), and then the joint and execute that mel, it moves the curve and changes the orientation etc. of the curve.

Note: all these curves transformations are frozen, all 0,0,0 rotations/translates/scales no history on them, and are being parented to 0,0,0 translate/rotate/scaled joints as well (not that it should matter).

Also on a side note, would it be better to do this method, or parent constrain the joints to the curves?
