How to close child work items automatically when a parent work item is closed?

The scenario is, there are multiple workitems (more than 10-15) which are linked to one parent workitem. We want only the parent workitem to go through the full workflow of state changes and approvals, and once the parent workitem is in 'Implemented' state, the child workitems should also move to Implemented automatically.
Is this possible from RTC (using provided customization features or using scripts)?

The post Resolve Parent If All Children Are Resolved Participant explains the other way around. It should be trivial to change the direction.

You need a custom follow up action (server extension). JavaScript will not work by the way.
