My son falls.all.the.time! It is sometimes hard to not go running, but he gets up without a tear! Even daycare said yesterday that he scrapped up his knuckles when he fell. He didn't cry and just got up and kept walking. A few minutes later, they noticed that his knuckles were actually bleeding. Unless it is a hard fall or he seems really hurt, I let him get up on his own. I think it is a good thing. For instance, my son DOES go to daycare and I know they can't always run for him when he trips. It lets him know that mommy is there if needed, but he is also ok on his own!
