Hi, for my nav menu I want all of the regular men links (not any from the drop down menus) to default to their first child link.  So when you click on 'about us' it goes to 'kitchen master'

but because its classes its needs not to default to the first one everytime but to which class was clicked so that it knows to go to the next link after that one, not 'kitchen master' everytime.

$('.parent').click(function () {
    var li =  $('li').next();
    var target_url = $('.ul_1 > ' + li + ':eq(0) > a').attr('href');
    if(target_url!=undefined) window.location.href=target_url;
    return false;

Any ideas?
