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:)
