Actually, unless you need something out of the ordinary, you can skip 
setting the ACL for the child mailbox, as it will inherit from its 
parent (from the docs page ):

    Initial ACLs for Newly Created Mailboxes
    When a mailbox is created, its ACL starts off with a copy of the ACL
    of its closest parent mailbox. When a user is created, the ACL on
    the user's INBOX starts off with a single entry granting all rights
    to the user. When a non-user mailbox is created and does not have a
    parent, its ACL is initialized to the value of the "defaultacl"
    option in "/etc/imapd.conf"

    Note that some rights are available implicitly, for example
    'anonymous' always has 'p' on user INBOXes, and users always have
    rights on mailboxes within their INBOX hierarchy.
