The described behavior is expected as the child grids have the same configuration, thus their editor names are the same. In other words, it is not possible to have two rows opened in edit mode simultaneously. A possible workaround would be to exit edit mode in all child grids before editing.
// attach BeforeEdit event handler
// beforeEdit event handler
// where `grid` is the name of the parent grid
