Use events to notify the Parent that a Child From has closed
Here's how
you must be doing something like this on the MDI form to open a new child form

Dim F as New form2
F.MDIParent = me
F.Show

now add an event hadler as well

Dim F as New form2
F.MDIParent = me
AddHandler F.FormClosing, AddressOf ChildClosing
F.Show

then have a function in MDI

    Private Sub ChildClosing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs)
        yourMenuItem.Enabled=True
    End Sub
