as always, RTFM helps :-)-O

Jürgen has highlighted the required toggles. 

I use this for a "handbook" of some 20 files and 800 pages.  Each
includes a (common) "include.tex" with many toggles.

I like that I can compile the Child documents separately, quickly and 
in Portrait with 11pt and when it is done do the whole project via 
Makefile, as Landscape 16 pt.

In your situation I would take the opportunity of separating each 
chapter into a Child Document while you are at it. Just in case you 
need to work on this in the future again.
