Are parent page permissions inherited by child pages?

I'm looking to create a one-stop space for troubleshooting guides and depending what team the user is part of is the pages they'll have access to. Since some of the guides apply to multiple teams, I want to create a page tree that has all the guides, while each team's page tree will have "Include Page" macros to include those guides within each tree that it applies to (this way if the guides change, the change only needs to be done in one place).

I know for this to work, these guide pages will need to be able to be viewed by everyone, but I still don't want users that are limited to their own page trees to access guides for other teams simply because they have a link. Would making the parent page as restrictive as possible, and leaving all the pages under this parent page as permissible as possible accomplish what I am trying to do? 

This is the hierarchy I have in mind:

---> Doc1
---> Doc2

---> Doc2

---> Doc1

---> Doc1
---> Doc2

Team members would have access to the page tree that belongs to their team and nothing else, while content managers would have access to the GUIDES page tree, and a few administrators that would update the macros and hierarchy as needed.

Hi @Anthony_Benitez , so i understand these doc pages are sub-pages, if so yes we can restrict the users viewing the individual child pages, although they may have access to parent page.

This can be achieved at the child page permissions settings.  Hope this helps.
