Please help.

We add all our products so that only the parent products get assigned into categories. I need to add a shopping cart price rule to exclude certain categories i.e:

If ALL of these conditions are TRUE : Category is not one of [category IDs]

The problem is the child products don't belong to any categories so the rule doesn't get applied to the cart.

Any solutions????
