Probably simple question re: parent rows

Hi-- there may be an obvious answer to this, but I have searched high and low and not found it.

I simply want to create parent rows that do not include the status features associated with certain columns.

In other words, most of my rows include a "Done" checkbox. That's great.

I don't want my parent rows (which simply describe the tasks which fall beneath them) to feature such a checkbox. 

How can I create a row without it? 

Thank you!
