Auto add parent assigne as watcher of subtasks

Has anyone a suggestion on how can the parent issue assignee be automatically set as a watcher for all subtasks? I have seen  and answer for the subtask assignee to be a watcher of the parent issue but I need a solution in the opposite way.

Check the Sub-task Toolkit add-on - it allows you to add a notification which notifies the watcher of the parent issue when any of it's subtasks were updated. And this is not the only sub-task related functionality it offers.

Another option is to implement a custom issue listener which automatically adds the assignee of the parent issue as watcher when a subtask is created. 

You can use your favourite scripting add-on to do that i.e. JJUpin or ScriptRunner

Do you have an example of such a script?
