how do I change the behaviour of my child forms in a mdi form?

Hi Experts,
I have multiple child forms inside a mdi form. some of the forms are with windows state.maximized and some with normal. when I try to close the child form with maximized state my other form that has normal state gets maximized. how can I prevent this from happening. I mean I want my normal form should stay normal. thanks for any help in advance.

the normal and maximized state are a global setting for all the open forms. Only the minimized setting is distinct for each form.

Maybe instead of being maximized, you can have a normal state but set the location to 0,0 and the size to place available in the MDIParent.
