In brief: Where are they?
Most toddlers and school-age kids seem to always have bruises on their shins and knees -- signs of an active childhood.
You worry when you find them in places you do not expect and if your child seems to have bleeding in other places, such as gums or stools or urine. If you are concerned have your child seen by her Doc.
