Unable to use the includeChildren=true for a Resource Item Describe

While trying to fetch the MetaData information using the REST Describe however while exploring the same we have come across an issue which is not working as per the documentation.
We want to recursively include the MetaData Information for an Parent Resource Item. For Example Lets say if we do a describe on Contact using the parameter ?includeChildren=true it should include all child items under contact while giving the Describe output. We have used the following url:
Method : GET
Content-Type : none

Response: Status: Bad Request: 400
  "title": "Bad Request",
  "status": "400",
  "o:errorDetails": [
  "detail": "URL request parameter includeChildren cannot be used in this context.",
  "o:errorCode": "27520"
