Bringing in a sizable MDI child form in its original size, not stretched

I have an MDI child form with a sizable border style that I bring into a MDI parent form.  When it comes in, it comes in stretched out rather than the size it was created.  None of my research indicates how to control this.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

build constants in the actual child for the size you WANT it to be, and set it to that size in form load.

If the border is sizable, the mdi parent sizes the form for you.. thinking it is doing you a favor
