child/parent forms


In my project, I have a 'navigation' form that opens first, and from there
the user chooses from multiple 'modules'.
Each module has a 'main' form that contains a menu to open many different
forms and reports.

Now I have the first 'navigation' form set as the parent form, with each
module's main form opening as a child.
Now my problem is, logically, all my main 'module' forms should be parents
of all the related forms under them...but I can't do this - my main module
form can't be both a child and a parent.
I need to share menus between my main module forms, and the related forms
below them.

How can I best deal with this?
