    My Dad had a leash. He turned out quite successful.

    It`s everyone else sheltering their kids that would screw them up. Things like leashes builds character. Makes the backbone strong. :/

    Nothing wrong with that, they are very helpful, when a small child won`t hold your hand or they are still really really short, it makes it easier and gives them a little freedom without having to worry about them running into the road or getting taken.
    they have them for the wrist too

    Right...The leash is far more detrimental to her self-esteem than abduction could ever hope to be.

    We used one for our daughter during that very brief age when she had just learned to walk, but we didn`t trust her enough to just let her go without holding our hand. She was able to walk to the store with us, without any fear that she would suddenly dart off into the road. Without it, she would have had to be in a stroller.

    Because of the "leash", she was walking farther and better then most kids her age. She had more confidence and still, to this day, exudes more confidence than many of her schoolmates.

    When used properly, they can be great for a kid.

    When you become a parent, you`ll probably use one. They`re nice. The one we got for daughter looks like a monkey, so she`s giving her monkey a piggyback ride, and the actual leash part is a tail, which can come off, and then she can use the monkey as a backpack because it has a pocket. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.d...

    Guess what? We are now 20 years old and he´s become a total loser. So... Please don´t do weird stuff with your kid

    It`s just to keep a parent sane for difficult-to-handle children.

    Eh, i can`t say whether i dislike them or not because i`ve never been a parent. I`ve kinda been leaning against them ever since i saw this one kid go running off with it on. He reached the edge of the leash, and it yanked him and he fell onto his back. though it was hilarious at the time...

    Perfect!

    We need to bring back the Spartan thing where we send kids out into the wilderness to survive for a week or so. Most kids these days cant survive for a day without someone feeding their cakeholes with toxic waste their parents dare to call food.

    I don`t see what makes it stupid. Many times kids run around and if the parent isn`t looking for a split second they can get separated. It brings a lot of peace to the mind to know your child is near you even if you look away. I used to think they were just demeaning, but sometimes they can be very useful. Just because they`re required for dogs doesn`t mean it`s ridiculous to have them for kids.

    Also, stop respond to StarDagger people. He`s a troll who feeds on attention. If you stop giving him it, he`s more likely to stop (yes, I`m aware of the irony that I`m giving him attention in order to give him less).

    Leashes are great devices for worthless parents whom can`t take the time to coordinate the movement of their child mentally. If you are mentally cahllenged and with child, this device will allow your mind to wander on stuff like lavendar soap and ""Greys Anatomy "show , while you don`t have to even exert thought on a childs` movements. A true godsend for the cerebrally impaired parent.

    I`m pretty sure they did not have computers back in the `spartan days`. You really need to get your facts right, people have become a little more civilized.

    Instead of making people cringe at your bs comments, get your forty something year old ass of the computer and go build a good `ol spear or something barbarian enough for your liking.

    i hate people who are soooo offended by a child leash.my sister was on one when she was little because she was so outgoing and would just walk up to anybody. my mother watched us very well but there`s no doubt some creeper could have snatched her up if my mom was getting something from a grocery shelf or something like that when she looked away for just a second or she could have ran away and had someone snatch her. so shut up, theyre not your children and it`s not really your business. i couldn`t agree more with cheeseman1.

    Those arent so bad..
    But I suppose not for the middle of a park or something, but the amount of times I`ve seen a kid stopped from falling onto a main road on a bust street somewhere is massive.

    And not due to lack of caring about where the child is going, but if a parent has been shopping and has stuff to carry or whatever, those are pretty handy

    Just saying

    1- Leashes can be helpful, and can save a life. My baby brother runs off if we don`t have him by his hand at all times, and he CAN and occasionally DOES slip away.
    2- Just because you do have your child on a leash, doesn`t mean you`re a bad or lazy parent. It just means that your child is a little hyper, and is harder to manage.
    3- When people say that if the kid is too hard to manage outside, and to not even bring the kid out just annoys me. How will the child ever LEARN to not run off? How will they learn to look before you cross the street? How?

    Speaking as a parent, I think they`re a `time-and-place` kind of item. County fairs, super-busy malls, airports, and other places with a high predator percentage, certainly. However, this looks like a city park, in which case it`s not very fair to keep the kid from running around and playing. Also, as far as the `difficult to handle` argument, I personally feel there are very few children that are simply born difficult or `it`s just that age`. I never went through the `terrible twos` or `trying threes` with my now-five-year-old. She`s only ever thrown one temper tantrum, and it was because I promised her something and was then unable to deliver, and all it consisted of was "But you promised!" and pouting. Most difficult children are simply a matter of not finding the right way to discipline, to be honest.

    Gah, sounded all preachy there. Done now, hope there was no offense. Not saying parents of difficult children are pooty parents, just that they haven`t found the right `bu

    as i start writing a comment my rage just continues building up. your child really cant move about their day without falling hard? You can`t stop your child from running in front of a car? You can`t trust not looking at your child for 5 seconds without being snatched away? What ever happened to holding your kids hand? What about effectivly communicating with your child? Its like we live in a world where every drating kid has ADHD and parents unable to remember they are in control. Why is it that suburban parents are more afraid of the world than city parents?

    I had one of the ones that velcroed around my wrist and the other end would be around my mom`s wrist. I had a bad habit of running up to strangers, dogs, and strange dogs.

    Yes, except by the end of the day she`ll safely have her one kid and he won`t have either, because he would have been busy paying attention to the dog to have watched his two kids run away and get lost.

    I used to think it was cruel for parents to do this to their kids, but after working in retail for so long... I see how important it is. When you`re a parent and you`re out in public you have to multi-task so you can`t ALWAYS have an eye on your kid. This is how they run away and get lost and then you have to call security and spend an hour and a half trying to find the kid instead of helping other customers.

    I wore one when I was a kid and we used one for our son. I always knew where my Mom was and it didn`t bother me to wear it.

    Our son liked to run off and get around corners before I could catch up with him due to a bad knee. That is why he had one. I would rather piss you people off by keeping my child under control in public instead of having to have every person in a store looking for my child in a panic thinking he was snatched. Some people who use leashes have a reason. Give them the benefit of the doubt. Not all kids are alike, some just bolt away. It didn`t hurt me or my kid a bit.

    We have to buy leashes because we aren`t allowed to spank our kids anymore. So instead of teaching them to behave we have to protect them anyway we can. When I can swat my kid on the bottom if she runs away then I won`t need a leash.

    Or, I dunno... YOU COULD RAISE YOUR CHILD BETTER.

    Or, I dunno... LEAVE THEM TO THE OTHER PARENT WHILE YOU SHOP.

    Or TAKE A FRIEND

    Or USE A BABYSITTER.

    @DrHorrible: EXACTLY.

    My mother never used a leash on me or any bullpoo like that, and I was a damnable hellraiser.

    You know what she did that worked? Rewards. Incentive kept me quiet.

    I found out way down the line she was only promising me things that she`d already have given me, but whatever.

    For instance: "If you`re good, we`ll get that Reese`s cereal you really like!"

    When she was already gonna buy the stuff.

    Worked on me until I hit puberty, pretty much.

    I`ve always been a problem child, but I`m also easily bribed.

    I don`t see anything wrong with leashing young children. It`s better than hitting them, which I have just seen put forward as a better choice. Especially if you don`t manage to hit them before they get hit by a car.

    Blah blah, treating them like a dog, blah blah.

    What, like supplying them with food and deciding what they eat? Like giving them simple orders that you expect to be obeyed because you have far more authority than them?

    If that was the case, humanity would be extinct. Humans can`t multitask anything that requires any thought. It`s a myth. It`s only autonomous things can be truly multitasked.

    So you`re saying watching your kid and trying to find what you need for dinner isn`t multi-tasking?

    What is it then?

    "So you`re saying watching your kid and trying to find what you need for dinner isn`t multi-tasking?

    What is it then?"

    Timeslicing - switching between tasks. You watch your kid for a very short period of time, then you look for what you need for dinner for a very short period of time...repeat. But you`re only doing one of the tasks at any given time, so you aren`t multitasking.

    You might think you`re multitasking, but that`s just your own mind fooling itself. That happens a lot, to everyone. A striking example: we all spend a lot of our waking lives completely blind and never notice it. We move our eyes very frequently, even when we think we`re not, and our visual feed is cut while our eyes are moving rapidly, probably to prevent disorientation and motion sickness. Our minds simply fool us about it by reshowing the previous image.

    I`m aright with hitting kids.

    There is however a difference between the occasional smack as a last resort, and constant beatings as a first.

    Although I`m not really understanding why the smacking and leashing are being seen as alternatives to each other.

    I`m living proof that smacking doesn`t always make obedient children. Especially not obedient to the point of not wandering around. I`ve never seen a kid that well behaved.

    Never.

    If you get smacked too much you either go one way (crying in a corner your whole life), or the other (didn`t actually give a poo when the principle caned me).

    And yes, I went to a school where they still used the cane. I was still sneaking over the fence to the girl`s school. I still snuck into all the nooks and crannies we weren`t allowed to go in.

    Sorry, final point.

    Me and my wife disagree on if we should ever hit the kids. I say yes occasionally, if necessary. She says no never.

    Having said that, I`m the more confident of the two of us. I suffer from none of the drawbacks associated with kids who were smacked, she suffers from all of them.

    This is because my mom would answer most things with a smack, her parents alternative was passive aggressive emotional blackmail bordering on psychological warfare.

    It`s disgusting, and it is ignored by almost all media outlets who are on a a crusade against a safer alternative.

    One valid point she does bring up from time to time is this however "THIS IS WHY YOU DON`T HIT KIDS! THEY TURN OUT LIKE YOU AND ARE IMMUNE TO ALL OTHER DISCIPLINARY MEASURES!"

    As you can probably tell, usually when I`ve done something wrong.

    I used to be totally against those leashes but then i realized for some kids those leashes are a comfort to them as much as they are for mom and dad. They can wander as much as they want and always know they got mom close. I always see kids just happen to walk away from mom at the grocery and she leaves and the kid starts screaming, absolutely terrified mommys gone. With the leash, theres no danger of that happening. I wouldn`t want one on me as a kid and I wouldn`t put one on my kids ever but I dont judge people.

    First of all I will say this:
    everyone has heard of the child in the well and the little children that mom only looks up from for a moment and if this were a picture of them you all would be doggin on the mom for not safeguarding her child.

    Having worked with mentally challenged children I can say with absolute certainty that some children NEED leashes.

    alright, munchkins, listen up. would you rather have a leash on your kid, or your kid in the hands of a deranged pedophile who beats and rapes her every day?

    yeah, i`d take the leash too. realize that the leash is meant to keep her safe and close to the parents, and in this dangerous society, i frankly applaud her.

    As the mom of 3 young men (23, 22 & 16), I have to say, when I had my boys out in the city with me when they were toddlers, the child harness was piece of mind. When you`re in a heavily crowded sidewalk, near a busy intersection or a mall, little ones can so easily break away. And when you have 2 kids, the challenge is greater.
    Until you have kids, don`t judge.

    @grom1203: I have 2 kids and never had to resort to such nonsense. How do you forget to keep your kid near you? Unless women are more easily distracted, like by shoes or purses.
    You have to take a class and pass a test to drive, but any moron can have a kid.

    Actually maubw i am the minority here but i find nothing with "kid leashes". Depending on the kid believe it or not some of them actually like to run away. It gives the child the freedom to walk around a bit on their own without holding mommies hand but it also makes sure they are safe. But i wouldn`t use them after a certain age. I mean if your kid can`t stay still at like age 6 or 7 then I think you need some rittalin.

    You know, its not that a person really gets distracted, but kids just run off all the time...You can look away to grab something turn around and theyve already gone. Not /all/ kids sit still and be good for mommy -.-` Im not saying i condone child leashes, but i can see why people use them lol

    a child leash doesnt make her a bad parent. she if anything is more responsible because she doesnt have delusions that her kid is perfect and would never run away. because kids do, and sometimes they can get lost or hurt. then she would look worse for not watching over her.

    To me, putting your kid on a leash is better than prescribing them medication for their attention deficit hyper activity disorder. A child(2-7 imo) shouldn`t be on behavioral medication no matter how hyper they are, that`s wrong. Putting them on a leash gives the parent more control and teaches them discipline and direction. Soon they wont act up when they are off of he leash, for fear of being put back on it.

    That`s easy to mock until you are actually in the situation of having to watch over mutliple young kids at once....

    I think this is a lot better than all the parents who let 2-5 year olds out of their sights...

    When I was little I had a wrist leash because of my absolute terrible adhd (which we later found out was a gland imbalace.) No matter what my mom tried, she couldn`t keep an eye on me cause I was alway amped up. I wasn`t destructive or anything, but I was constantly running everywhere all the time. I can also see them for deaf/mmrd kids. Harder for them to understand boundaries sometimes.

    yeah but thats the sad thing, they are common which is both wierd and wrong...i understand some kids just cannot sit still, and it sucks, but those kids do not need to be public if you cant handle them...not saying its the parents fault in that situation, but life isnt fair kiddo
