I lost track of my friends son during a parade!
My friend, her two sons, another friend, her husband and child and I were all waking in a parade for my work. My friend with two boys was walking farther up front with her older boy and I was walking farther back with the younger boy (3 at the time) We were handing goodies to the crowd and the younger boy and I decided to run to catch up with his mom and brother. They were about 3 blocks away. I started jogging with him looked up to check where his mom was looked back down and he was gone! I freaked out and started screaming his name. The hubby of my other friend saw me freaking and started yelling for him too. I ran up to his mom to tell her what happened and BAM he was next to his mom handing out goodies. I almost cried right there. He ran faster than I thought. I couldn't live myself if anything had happened to him.

I've never understand why people don't use the buggy up to the weight limit and the leash type of backpack or whatever type works with their children. They say my child is not a dog and my mother had never needed. But they don't think about the today lifestyle. Busy people, loads of people, big stores, loads of cars on the streets. They think they can manage their children's behaviour but on the street and in the stores you are too busy to control everything. I am fully support the safe part. And I don't think the leash (especially the cute backpack ones) make a child look like a dog or feel like a dog. Anyway we put the leash on our dog not to let it wonder off or hurt itself. This leash thing doesn't point to the slavery anymore. It is only a big old prejudice what lost its meaning in this age. We live in a modern and busy world. It can be only a second to someone steal your child or a car hit him or her.
