Unable to impose restrictions on a page within a Confluence space

Dear Experts

I want only selected people to edit a page and its child pages in a Confluence space. So tried imposing restriction on that page using the 'restrictions' page option.  I have selected 'Only specific people can view or Edit' option under restriction for the parent page and given only 'view' permissions for the default 'confluence-users' group.

However,  a user from the 'confluence-users' group can still edit this page and its subsequent changes. What could be the issues here?

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards

Adding to the above, 'confluence-users' is not able to edit the parent page where the restrictions are applied, so this is fine. However, they are able to edit all the child pages even though the child pages indicate that It inherits view restrictions from the Parent page where I specified 'confluence-users' can only 'View' the page and 'Everone' has no access.
