Parent page text frame options not applying across all pages

I have a 28 page document. I set up the pages and the parent pages prior to importing the word document. The Parent page is applied to page 6 onwards. No Parent page is applied to pages 1-5. The Text Frame options on the parent page have Inset Spacing applied. When I Place my word document the inset spacing does not apply to any of the pages. 

 

Other elements on the Parent page do apply as expected (page number and header). Why do my text object options not apply across all pages linked to the Parent page?

To do what you want to do, you should create a Primary Text Frame. Here are a couple sources of information how to do that:

The short answer to why it's not working now:

 

There are two main differences between Primary Text Frames and normal, non-primary text frames:

 

  1. On a document page, when a master with a primary text frame is applied, you don’t have to override the primary text frame to type or paste text into the frame.
  2. When a master page with a primary text frame is applied to a document page, the story in the primary text frame automatically flows into the primary text frame of the new master page.
