Aren’t indoor dog parks great for these fall and winter months?

    I’m not a parent, but does anyone else think parents that keep their kids on leashes have just given up?

    I used to think those kid leashes were stupid until I saw my sister-in-law with her 4 small children and they all ran in different directions. Watching her chase after them several times I thought…Hmmm…she needs some child leashes! LOL

    I wore a leash as a kid when we went to like disney, I liked to wander off and just follow anybody ( I had a knack for zoning out). I think the people who use them at wal-mart, have in fact, given up. Are they so lazy they can’t get a cart!

    If you have EVER had a child run out in a parking lot, or get lost in a store, you would totally understand the need for a leash. My granddaughter’s was a monkey and we called it the monkey on her back. She only ran out into the parking lot one time –

    @ Megan – Let us know how it feels to have a child dart from your grasp and be injured, or worse, taken from you. Think of all the kids who have disappeared and YES, it can happen right under your nose. This is not cruel parenting, it’s smart parenting. Some kids truly need this means of protection.

    Until you have multiples that like to run around, ex my triplets than you can talk. I think it’s safer than letting them run. It’s up to the parent and no one else. All 3 of mine had a leash. It was easier than chasing them every way because you know they can’t go in one direction. I fail to see why this pic is even on here.

    I have a child and never used a leash on him. He came close to running in the street once, and it only happened once. I whooped his butt for that one, and he hasn’t done that since. I take him to highly crowded places all the time, and have yet lost him. You tell your child to hold your hand, and if they don’t want to. Then they go home. It is called putting your foot down and being a parent.

    Agreed about watching your kids…I raised my child by myself…he would walk holding my hand OR he would be carried…I was very small at the time and when he got 4 or so it wasnt easy on my small body (at the time! LOL) I would hold his arm in the cart to look at something if I had to take my eyes off him..what if he climbed out? Your child CANT slip your grasp if you are holding them tight enough..thats our job!!! period. If your child “slips” from your grasp then you should leave them home because obviously you are too weak and feeble to handle a child in a dangerous situation! My son is 28 years old and I watched him like a hawk ..I cant imagine taking my eyes off a child these days. My son never had a broken bone, was never lost or anything of the sort…AND I was just 18 when I had him..so..I think I know a thing or two about parenting..no excuse for taking your eyes off your child. They are your priority!

    Putting your kid on a leash has nothing to do with good or bad parenting. I know alot of people that should be kept in a cage but, …… The leash is a safety measure. You know where your kid is and you don’t have to fight with a screaming kid because they don’t want to be in a cart. I used them and I have raised six kids. When they reach a certain age, they want to walk like “big people”. I always told my kids they had to keep me from getting lost. As far as treating them like pets, my dog stays right with me but I still leash him for his safety too. All it takes is a momentary distraction and they’re gone – no matter how well the pet or kid is trained. If more people treated their kids and pets the same this would be a better world. Too many people treat their animals better than their kids.

    I GREW UP ON SPANKINGS…. AND MOST OF THE TIME, IT ONLY TOOK ONE AND I KNEW NOT TO DO THAT AGAIN. MAYBE THESE PARENTS NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SPANK THE CHILD AND PREACH TO THEM THE DANGERS OF RUNNING OFF. MY 3 YEAR OLD DOESN’T NEED THE LEASH. HE STAYS RIGHT BY OUR SIDE THE WHOLE TIME NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE. I’VE NEVER HAD TO SPANK HIM. I’VE ALWAYS TALKED TO HIM ABOUT THE DANGERS OF RUNNING OFF.

    If you have to put your kid on the leash cause your afraid they’ll run off, why don’t you just put them in the grocery cart? Rather than dragging them through the store kicking and screaming and making a scene like this child is.

    I raised four children. There was only one child that could have used a leash but I couldn’t find them anywhere (I love the ones that look like monkey backpacks.) I beat her butt every time she ran away but it didn’t do any good. Now she has a daughter (my granddaughter) and she’s as good as gold. Go figure.

    I got my daughter a “back pack monkey” leash for trips to the zoo. She hated holding my hand, and was to the point that she also didn’t want to sit in a stroller. The “leash” gave her a feeling of freedom, and I could let her walk by herself without worry. I see its not the most poplar choice for a lot of people on here, but I think its far better than beating a toddler for wanting to have some freedom. Geesh, its like some of you on here are acting like this kid has a collar on.

    Take a look at the kids in the pictures posted at the Walmart entrance. I hate it every time this issue comes up because of a picture like this. I hate to see the parents on TV terrified and begging. Hunters go where the deer are, as the saying goes. And there are usually kids running loose in Walmart or Target. Easy prey. Everyone who says “parents who use leashes are lousy parents” can go straight to hell.

    To all of you who say “It is bad parenting to put a kid on a leash” you acutally have it backwards. It is good parenting to put a kid on a leash. Some kids for different reasons need to be on a leash. I have raised 4 kids, twins that are now 20 years old, a daughter soon to be 17 and a son that has just turned 6. None of my 3 girls ever needed a leash, they were very good and stayed right with us and never minded being in a buggy. My 6 yr old on the other hand needed a leash. No matter how you punished him, or what you took away from him, he would not stay still and we would have to chase him down the aisle. A leash fixed that issue. After we found out that he has a medical condition that affects his short term memory and he has adhd, I was upset with myself for punishing him before we got the leash. All is not always as seems, especially from a picture. Some have said he is dragging her around, does not look that way to me. Looks like a child who does not want to leave and has sat down on the floor, As for the dad, props to him for keeping his daughter safe.

    For those of you who are downing leashes and think it is lazy needs to get a grip. Leashes were made for a reason. I am a mother of 3 kids. I ONLY used a leash on ONE of my children. NOT lazy, nor do I need parenting classes. The child I used a leash on, NEEDED it for his safety. I wasnt too lazy to get a cart, I got a cart, and I couldnt turn my back to get an item, or monkey boy decided that was a free chance to escape. He LOVED people, and loved to see things, and WAY ADHD. For HIS safety, I used a leash, so he would not walk off meeting people, or trying to find SOMETHING to explore. If I had not used the leash, you would be on here downing me because I couldnt control my kids in public. Take a side, make up your mind. I keep him under control and safe, then I am lazy, I put him in a cart, and he escapes, I dont watch my children. Geeze, grow up! Pick your battles. The leashes do not in any way hurt a child, you are only complaining, cause it is not how YOU raise your children.

    Ooh. So, we’re a bad parent for putting a harness on our kids. Let’s see, a two year old and a three year old in Penn Station in NYC, the Mall in Washington DC, An airport in Miami. Juggle suitcases, a purse, three backpacks, an envelope full of tickets and HAVE to be at gates at a specific time, and THEN see if you people with three young kids can manage SO easily. God’s Blessings to you if you can. I couldn’t.

    And at Walmart juggle two young kids, a shopping cart, and a list, along with money, not to mention the backpack with all the diaper supplies, and putting groceries in the cart and again, if you do it SO perfectly God Bless you. I couldn’t. But, with the harnesses, made in nice stuffed animal shapes, nothing got grabbed from the shelves, nothing got broken, and my guys didn’t get to run in the parking lot.

    Oh, and for those of you who say, “spanking’, ‘butt-whuppin’ and so on. JUST TRY TO DO THAT IN PUBLIC!! You’ll have the cops called on you faster than you can gather all your kids together, get ‘em strapped in their car seats, and drive away.

    God bless all you who manage without the harnesses and Kudos to you for being such a wonderful, make-no-mistake, parent. I’m sure I’ll see your picture as the next ‘National Parent of the Year.

    Stop patting yourself on the back just because your child happens to be compliant and not more “spirited” like some others. My first child was super-compliant by nature, and (I’m ashamed to say) I was as harshly judgmental as some of the know-it-alls posting on here. My second child (AKA “the humbler” LOL!) is NOT compliant by nature. I am a very good parent and an early childhood educator of 26 years, so I do have a little more expertise than your average bear. However, I STILL keep my child tethered and safe, when in crowds like this and I don’t care what narrow-minded people think. I know she is loved AND disciplined (which doesn’t mean the same thing as being beaten or spanked btw!). Get a little perspective on life before judging others!

    I used one of those leashes. My kids weren’t running all over the place. I used it to be able to give them a little independance yet keep them close.

    you know what? if we call it a leash we think it’s for an animal. it’s not that kind of leash. i have a child with special needs and she WILL bolt any chance she gets. yes while i am looking right at her. she is quick too. if you are luck to never need one then bless you but don’t judge a man (or woman) until you have walked a mile in their moccasins. it’s also a convenient way to let your kid have some freedom without any sprained wrists and jerking about on their little arms

    WOW! I’m amazed at how many child-rearing experts visit this site! Unfortunately, it seems that many of them haven’t had the experience of raising a difficult, strong-willed, or special needs child. Seems to me like each family needs to make that judgement on their own, and the “experts” need to mind their own business.

    For all those people who say its bad parenting to have them on a leash are wrong because we i am pregnant with my 2nd child and i have a one year old that likes to run around and play i need her on the leash because i cant run after her its not bad parenting everyone has their own opinions about it but try it and see that it works because she absolutely loves her leash she puts it one when she wants to go outside its her choice i will never lay a finger on her. My parents hit me spanked me and what not but ha that didnt even work it just made me dislike them and do the same bad thin gs over and over again so…. you say its ok to hit your child then to out them on a leash wow thats just wrong and yet you want to call parents who put their kids on a leash bad parents when you HIT yours hmmm…. just think about what your saying!!!!!!

    All of you who are saying, ‘MY child never ran away after I spanked him once’, congratulations. You have a kid for which that worked. It doesn’t work for every kid. My sister has two: one, his daddy looks at sternly and says, ‘Son, you disappoint me’, and he’s sniffing and saying ‘Sorry Daddy.’ The other one gets spanked, and says, ‘So what?’ Some kids are sprinters- they’ll take off from a standing start and be out of arms’ reach before a parent knows it. Give other parents a break. They’re making a decision about what’s best for their family. It may not be your decision, it may not be best for YOU and YOUR kid, but that doesn’t mean they’re wrong or lazy. Personally, I’d hate to have to walk through Wal-Mart with my hand over my head, and I don’t blame a kid who gets tired of it and pulls his hand loose. At least with a leash, the kid can put his arm in whatever position is comfortable for him.
    And I think it’s really strange that someone would say that ‘busting his butt’ is kinder than a leash. Think about it- there’s swatting, there’s spanking, and then there’s ‘busting his butt’. You really need to ‘bust’ a child to teach them to behave?

    I appreciate the folks who have control over their kids no matter how they obtain it. The kids that are left to run thru the store and collide with the elderly coming around a corner…..bad scene. My 2 kids were well behaved in public because that is what was expected at home. There are exceptions to every thing. My niece has add/adhd and was in a stroller against her will til she was 4. When she couldn’t behave in the store her mother left her home.

    The backpack thing isn’t really like a leash, It’s a fun little backpack. My son puts his favorite cars in his when we bring it along. My son is 2 and has always been very strong. He easily breaks free of hand holding especially now that I’m 8 months pregnant and have no strength in my hands at all. The backpack gives him the freedom to walk next to me and learn about his surroundings in crowded places without me having to worry about him running into traffic or being snatched. I haven’t used it in the grocery store, just really crowded outdoor places like the fair. I would also never drag him. Wearing the backpack and walking next to mom is a freedom he has to listen or go in the stroller. Also, I love the people whose alternative to the leash is beating your kids :) That’s great parenting.

    I harbor no hate twards the leash. When used properly it is a wonderful tool for keeping your child safe. The real issue is, why is he draging her around o the floor? Does he have any idea how nasty the floors in Walmart (or any public place for that matter) are? tThis is how epidemics get started people. You drag your kid through snot, dirt, poop, spit, vomit, dust, and all other manner of revolting things, and they will get sick. Little children cannot keep their hands out of their mouth.

    And for those of you who dislike the leash, you would aslo complain if a young child ran out in front of you, or was in your way, or made a mess. You cannot have it both ways with toddlers. (5 year olds however are a different story). And for those of you spanking enthusiusts, if you spank a toddler you should have that toodler taken away from you. Spaking should not occure untill at least the age of 4. If you saw e parent other than you spanking a toddler you would be in an uproar. As I before mentioned, you can’t have it both ways.

    @ Michelle….I hope you have a hyper active kid who runs all over the place and can’t help themselves. Kids are kidnapped everyday and I never heard of a child on a leash being taken away never to be seen again. Atleast the parent knows where that kid is and can have more control over that undesirable behavior until the child learns better. The leash does not have to last forever and they will not learn to behave properly in public by leaving them at home and never taking them out. They deserve to be taught right the first time and parents do what they have to do, especially for kids who think “everybody is my friend”, even the child molester in aisle 7. I forgive you for your ignorance but who are you to judge. You don’t have kids and you don’t know.

    Can’t any of you see what’s really going on? The kid is dragging the father around. He’s got his heels dug right into the floor there. Right through the linoleum. The dad is going “Noooo, please, I beg you, let me get one beer, pleeeease” and the kid is like “No beer for you, because you have been a bad man today, go to your room without watching your football game”. I think that says something about today’s society, doesn’t it? We need sturdier linoleum!

    With my first two kids I never thought of using a leash. I thought it was cruel and unusual punishment… but then I had my son… He’s two and no matter what I do he still runs away, I turn my back to grab something off the shelf while he’s in the cart and he climbs out of the buckle and I have to grab him before he climbs down. He’s an escape artist and the only thing I have found that works is a leash. That way he has a couple feet to walk around because he gets antsy just sitting there and he feels like a big boy walking next to me. I don’t always use it, but I feel so much safer because he hasn’t been able to get out of it and he’s tethered right to me. Having you kid on a leash doesn’t mean you’ve given up or are a bad parent. Yes some parents use this because they are lazy and don’t want to deal with their kids, but you can’t automatically assume every parent is like that who uses kid leashes.
