When we did our first cruise it was a concern for us as well. DD was 4 at the time. She stood on the chair once to see and was told not to do it again we would help her. No problems since. She preffered we sat out there with her anyway. Her and I would sit there in the morning Id drink coffee and she her milk and we would watch as we came into port. Have a great cruise

Levels of protection:

First, parents need to supervise children.
Next--HEAVY door with lock at adult shoulder level, rails are outside the plexiglass on clear wall balconies so there is no place to get a foothold on the railings. Top of railing is about 4 feet high--way too high for a child to go over without climbing.

DCL will remove furniture if desired. Ask stateroom host.

Warning--I did read one post about a child being able to scoot around the balcony dividers on the Dream and get onto the neighboring balcony. I can't address this personally as I've never been on a Dream balcony, but it was posted.
This isn't true on the Dream class ships. The "rails" are sort of split and sandwich the plexiglass. It's a small lump on the inside of the glass, but enough to freak me out.

But as other poster's have said, the door lock is up high, and the door is VERY heavy. AND it makes lots of noise opening (a big suck and a whoosh sort of) so you will definitely hear it if your child turns out to be HeMan or SheRa.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
