You're doing anything wrong, unfortunately that's how its been setup. The navbar is from the twitter bootstrap integration and due to the rise in touch screen/mobile devices this is how they wrote the navbar. As is someone on a touch device was trying to access the drop down they would also end up clicking the parent link.
There are some other alternatives, classic nav allows you to have a parent as a link and a drop down. There are also some premium navs in the pagelines store which allow for the top item to be a link which you could use.Go to the full post
