Workflow Conditions and Post Functions for Parent/Child transitions

I am trying to add Conditions and Post Functions to my workflow for the following:

Parent transitions from Backlog to Defined: All Children(subtasks) transition to Defined

Child(subtask) transitions from In Progress to Resolved: Parent transitions to Resolved after ALL Children(subtasks) have transitioned to Resolved

I am trying to achive this using the condition 'subtask blocker' and the post functions 'transition parent' and 'set the status from parent' but have not been able to come up with the right combination.

Any thoughts?
