Parent table: Client 
Child tables: Programs (Legal, Immigration, Housing, etc.)

Is there a way to mark the corresponding checkbox or field in the parent record when a child record is added without going in and doing it manually

Do you simply mean to know if the Parent has any Children, and if you check a box on the Parent?  if you, just make a Summary field of the # of Children, and then make that checkbox a formula to be true of the [# of children] > 0.
