How do I parent the lights rotation, but not motion to always look at an object?

Thanks

The "Target Item" in the Light's Motion Options (shortcut "m") will always point the light at the item you specify.

If, instead, you mean you want the Light's rotation to match the object's rotation, but not it's position, try setting the object as the "Goal Object" (Motion Options again, usually used for IK on bones), and Match Goal Orientation. It doesn't give real-time feedback, and I'm not sure it's *supposed* to work, but it appears to.
