The youngest is pretty wild. She wants to climb everything. I don't want to helicopter, but she sure falls a lot!

I'm more concerned about your comment about helocopter than your child's falls. It sounds like you need to figure out your role in your child's life. I have 3 grown children and it's been my observation that the young kids that have problems are the ones that have mothers that won't let them do things out of fear and the ones whose mothers push them to do things they weren't developmentally for.
If you have a fearless child you always have to be aware of what they are doing and they will still probably get hurt. My youngest son has bipolar disorder and had symptoms of mania as early as when he was 2. When kids are manic they think they are superman and can't get hurt. He has had lots of stitches and several broken bones. I always made him wear a helmet from the time he started riding a tricycle.
