My three year old still uses a stroller

She isn't special needs or disabled. She is a normal three year old. For our walks down the road, I put her in the stroller with her 15mth old brother. It is a double stroller/bike trailer.

I do this because, while I have taught her that cars are dangerous and we do not run into the road, I do not want a circumstance where I am very wrong. I do not want to spank my child for running into the road. I do not want to use a backpack harness, not that I'm against them I just don't want to use one. We live in a busy area. If we go anywhere, we are near a busy road. If my husband is with us, she can walk, but there is no way in hell I'm going to try it alone.

That's my confession today:)

I dont see an issue wtih that, my kid was in a stroller till 5... do what you have to do, and dont think about what anyone else thinks about the safety of your kid in a stroller.

3 isn't bad. The other day a lady was pushing a little girl in an umbrella stroller and her feet were dragging on the ground. Now that's bad.

Mine didn't, because the exercise was important as well as the skills building.  My oldest 2 are one year apart and my youngest is 3 years behind the middle.  But different people are comfortable with different choices.

My ds just turned 3 and we still use a stroller. Today we walked to the park and I took the double stroller and he rode in it.
