maintain axis with parent object with the child following the rotation...

Hi guys,
I'm working with an oval sign that has to "swing" in to frame from above. I've added a swinging cube object and attached it with dynamics and spring effectors...but when I rotate the parent object, the child object will not match the rotation of the parent object. Essentially, the lower segment is rotated just out of frame and rotates into frame with the child object....but for some reason the child object refuses to follow the axial rotation of the parent sign.

What can I do to lock the rotation of the sign with the dynamic springs in place so that it appears to have a kinetic feel...so it swings a bit back, then forward again until the dynamics have run their course?

THANK YOU!
