Goto Project->Options... Menu, swith to the "Forms" tab page, there are two panels: Auto-create forms and Available forms.
Auto-created forms are created automatically when the project starts, move them to the other panel and they won't be auto-created(but leave your MDI Form to keep your project at least has one main form) . And then, when you want to load the Child forms, use the code like this format:
    ChildForm1 := TChildForm1.Create(Application);

And besure to free your form like below when it close( or it will only be minimized ), in the FormClose event:

  Action := caFree;
  ChildForm1 := nil;
