Yes, closing the MDIParent closes the child forms.  No, you do not have to loop through calling the close method of each child form.

"When a form is closed, all resources created within the object are closed "

from this msdn article:

I have no problem. I read this sentence before but I thought that the resources mean file handler, images, controls and so on. I am not sure that MDI children are resources of MDI parent.

If I didn't get another answer today I will accept your answer.

It does mean resources.  The children are objects that live in the mdichildren collection object of the parent.  Just like controls are objects that live in the forms control collection.
