Parent and child liability accounts cancel each other

I want to track unreimbursed supervisor mileage as a parent account with 5 supervisors as child accounts. However, instead of adding all the child accounts, MD makes an equal and opposite entry for the parent account, leaving the liability as zero in the Net Worth report.

Please tell me how to fix this.

I tried pulling one supervisor (Cindy) out of the parent account, and that does not work either. It likewise is canceled out by an equal but opposite amount being added in the net worth report.

Screenshots of both efforts are attached.

Correct net worth is $10,369.46.
