and yet another reason not to buy a LEASH for your child…
October 21st, 2010
actually there was a mother here in tennessee that straight up left her kid in walmart and didn’t know it. this was on mother’s day!! she still had no idea until the next day when she recieved a phone call from one of her relatives who had picked her child up at walmart for her.

Oh my!! How do you leave your kid and not have any idea, specially for two days????

Leashes! What is it with the leashes on kids..when my kids were little they didn’t have those…. We made our kids listen out in public or they did’n leave the house

It least she did not lose him or leave him. And on top of the she was donating to all of us by helping keep the floors clean so we could get cheaper items…. lol

I was going to comment on this picture, but instead I must say I’m more offended by the lack of spelling & grammer skills by everyone that did comment. wow.

I worked as a manager at Wal Mart for a few years and we had a woman do this same thing. She literally dragged her child through the store while she shopped. Another customer called the police and as she was leaving the police called to her to come back in the store and she dragged the kid, in front of the police, about ten feet so she could talk to them. Needless to say, CPS came to take her child into custody.

Kid: Mama, my feet hurt…
Mom: Then lay down on the ground so i can get out your leash and drag you around the store. Is that what you want?
Kid: No ma’am! My feet don’t hurt anymore!
Mom: That’s what i thought…
Where’s child services when you need them?

I would NEVER do that to my kid. I let his older brother do it!

It is possible the kid has AUTISM. Once they get too big for the shopping cart, a harness and leash are the only way to keep the kid from wandering away. Using the leash sucks, but not as much as losing a speechless child in a walmart. Just look at who shops there!

These people of Walmart are the “OTHERS” I keep talking about.
“If we are here to help others…what are the others here for?”
Just because she has no throat is no apology to think the kid won´t need one, too. But I apologize for my spellellelling, English is not my native language. Guess why. *gulp*

Ginger: if you are going to comment on spelling and “grammer”, it is usually best to use proper spelling and grammar. Wow. (See what I did there with the capitalization?)

Use Your Eyes
The mother is not moving.Looks like the boy was walking, mom stopped, he got bored and laid down. Next.

Really??? You can all tell just exACTLY what is going on by looking at this photo?? I used a leash for my children when they were tots. I dare any of you to walk up to me and have anything to say about that. Although, I did have three small children, and I was usually by myself when shopping! Maybe, if others used leashes in crowded public places, …. Well, imagine how traumatic it is to have a child missing!!

I don’t agree with leashes on kids, but I would say that the kid just threw himself on the floor and started throwing a fit over something. I have a three year old and i’ve been there (minus the leash)
May 22nd, 2011
Ok, let me just say two or three things. First of all, everyone commenting needs to go back to school and learn proper grammar. Second, the kid isn’t being dragged, he is just throwing a fit or was bored and laid down. Third, instead of using a leash, how about you beat his ass? I was spanked as a child and I’m glad I was. People these days think spanking is sadistic, well those are the idiots dragging their children around on leashes.

A father holding his childs hand
Uhhh… what ever happened to holding your childs hand? And as for ‘the devastation of loosing your child’, what ever happened to holding your childs hand? Though my words make be mangled to some, I think ultimately my point and question is this.. “What ever happened to holding your childs hand?”

Wasn’t there a mother who went to jail for doing this with her child in an airport? If I were that kid, I would say, “Wheeeee!!!!!”

I wonder if that picture was taken at the Everett Wal-Mart.
There’s been a couple times that I’ve seen a woman walking a kid on a leash down the street. This was only a couple miles away from that Wal-Mart.

Just another sorry excuse for a parent. If someone did this to an adult, it would be illegal, why not for children? I just don’t get it.
August 27th, 2011
I see no harm in using a “leash” on children as long as they are used in the proper way. I use them on my children so they can walk along me and I do not have to worry about them wondering. Now I do not drag my children when they are on the “leash”. How do ppl know that this lady was dragging the kid anyway? what if the kid was throwing a fit? who knows…

While some mothers are just too lazy to deal with difficult children, I will tell you, I had a leash for my 2nd child. As a toddler she was adept at pulling a Houdini when it came to: shopping carts, car seats, chain link fences, strollers……she was a challenge. Since I couldn’t hold onto her every second of every day, especially during shopping and errands, it was a constant, constant challenge. Believe me, the leash was a desperate last act. Did she like it? No. Did I end up dragging her when she rebelled because she would rather be exploring somewhere else? Yes, a couple of times.
Too many people take one look and make instant judgement, as I’m sure many people did with me and my daughter way back when. Did they know me and my daughter? If they did, would they have thought differently?
Funny thing – my first child – easy peasy. Well behaved, easy going, cheerful. Shocked, shocked I was at those parents who put their child on a leash! Until I had my second child.
September 19th, 2011
I used to be like SO many of these judgmental, compassion-lacking, self-absorbed people when it came to other people’s children. After all, I know best, right?
Until I had one. A difficult one too. Granted, I use shopping carts. He sits in one. Period. But, I DO own a leash for stores that DO NOT have carts (something I rather loathe and I try to avoid those stores when possible).
Seriously, PAY attention when you shop. You NEVER need both hands?! Really??! Because I DO! And that means I have to let go of my ridiculously fast, sneaky, NOT SHY, two year old. Yeah, right. Like I’m NOT going to have SOME way to make sure he doesn’t wander off in the 5 seconds it takes him to disappear.
And, yeah, this kid looks like he sat down or whatever. It DOESN’T look like she’s dragging him. Please. Give me a break. Moving on to people who have an apparent lack of fashion sense and an overabundance of rolls they wish everyone to see…I mean, at least those are reasonably funny.
To those who complain about this parent, I challenge you to offer to babysit your friend’s kids for a week. THEN post.

Wow what do you say but wow, I have 2 children and I thought I went too far when I locked my self in the bathroom for 10 min to keep my self from killing them lol. I have left a store when they got unruly but I have never had the idea to drag them through the store wow! Just wow

mother of two
The child looks like he laid down on the ground to throw a fit, and he is clearly wearing a monkey backpack which is a leash for children where they wear a back pack with the leash part attached to that my son has one too and throws him self on the ground all the time.
November 9th, 2011
Leashes for kidsequals lazy parents! I had four small children at one time and since there are four corners to a cart, it was pretty obvious that they were to hold on so they were never lost or bothering people in public. It just takes a little effort to raise your children the right way!

mom of 3
I have three kids never used a leash with my older two children. I only purchased the monkey backpack with a leash attached because my son LIKES it. He makes it look even worse because when he puts it on he gets on all fours and wants to walk like a dog. Don’t be so quick to judge when you don’t know the situation. If a parent wants to use a leash for whatever reason so be it. Yes children throw themselves on the ground and just lay there when we moms take too long to shop. So stfu. It has nothing to do with bad or lazy parenting!!!!
