closing an MDI child form

I need to enable a menu item on a parent based on the closing of a
child form. I need help in general on how to let the parent know the
child has closed.
Here are the basic steps I've done:
Menu item opens child form
Menu item get disabled so user can't open another form
User enters data into child form
When user closes the child form the menu item gets enables again -- I
need help with this part
