You could use something like this, which I have taken from a test app I made to create the initial empty document with a maximized child frame in InitInstance():

...
      CMultiDocTemplate* pDocTemplate;
      pDocTemplate = new CMultiDocTemplate(
            IDR_MDITYPE,
            RUNTIME_CLASS(CMDIDoc),
            RUNTIME_CLASS(CChildFrame), // custom MDI child frame
            RUNTIME_CLASS(CMDIView));
      AddDocTemplate(pDocTemplate);

      // create main MDI Frame window
      CMainFrame* pMainFrame = new CMainFrame;
      if (!pMainFrame->LoadFrame(IDR_MAINFRAME))
            return FALSE;
      m_pMainWnd = pMainFrame;

      // Parse command line for standard shell commands, DDE, file open
      CCommandLineInfo cmdInfo;
      ParseCommandLine(cmdInfo);

      // Dispatch commands specified on the command line
   if (cmdInfo.m_nShellCommand != CCommandLineInfo::FileNew)
   {
         if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo))
               return FALSE;
   }
   else
   {
      CDocument* pDoc = pDocTemplate->CreateNewDocument();
      CFrameWnd* pFrame = pDocTemplate->CreateNewFrame(pDoc, NULL);
      pMainFrame->MDIMaximize(pFrame);
      pFrame->InitialUpdateFrame(pDoc, TRUE);
   }

      // The main window has been initialized, so show and update it.
      pMainFrame->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);
      pMainFrame->UpdateWindow();

      return TRUE;
}

Here's another alternative:

Override the virtual function ActivateFrame in your derived CMDIChildWnd as this:

void CChildFrame::ActivateFrame(int nCmdShow)
{
   CMDIFrameWnd* pMainFrame = (CMDIFrameWnd*) ::AfxGetMainWnd();
   pMainFrame->MDIMaximize(this);
      
   CMDIChildWnd::ActivateFrame(nCmdShow);
}

Less flexible, but it should work for you.
