my three year old is too big for his stroller and I hate going into large crowds having to carry him around because he is a scape artist. Therefore, I was looking into those wrist leashes (the ones that attach to my wrists and his), not the ones that have a monkey or some other animal on the back and you hold the end. I was wondering what other mother thought of this because before I had my son I felt bad for those kids on leashes (the ones with the monkeys) but now I do not think it is such a bad idea. what you ladies think?Answer Question

So funny to see parents walking their kids like dogs. I"m sorry maybe it works for some people. We go out to a lot of different places & both my kids know that you hold hands & do not run off alone. I wouldn't leash my kids. If they don't remember the rules & run off then we go home. End of story. That's probably why they usually don't stray.
That's exactly how I feel. I take my kids with me all the time and have never had this issue. They know you don't run off and if they do then they don't get to be big boys/girls and go with Mommy. If you instill it in your child when their young, that it's bad to run off and that they could get lost or hurt, there is no need to harness or leash.
