I certainly don't see that option in any of TeXShop's hidden preferences as given in the TeXShop Help Panel.

The only thing I found annoying was the flashing in the Dock so I checked off `Minimize windows into application icon' in System Preferences->Dock. That will flash once when the included file first opens. I could swear that typesetting would open the root source file but now I don't see that happening.

Good Luck,
