I have five bots ages 22 months to 7 yrs old. When grocerie shopping i can only fit one or two in the buggy and my kids try to run in all different directions. Timeouts have not worked so yes if i had any i would use them. I have started to shopping once hubby is home so he watches the kids whike i go but he is out of state right now. Im always scared i wont be able to keep an eye on all of them and that obe will be kidnapped. Going to walmart for some groceries today but i will have my fil with ne and ge will be able to put two in a buggy so my 7 yr old will be only one walking.

Quoting sdunaway08:

Everytime I think of child leashes I get the image of the morbidly obese couple at the zoo sitting on a bench while their child plays in the dirt at the end of the leash. To say the least, I hate the thought of them. Plus, they teach your child nothing. Everytime I go to a flea market or craft show...there is always that one kid on one that is walking right out in front of you or messing with the items they shouldnt be touching while mom is 4-5 feet away not paying a bit of attention because "HEY MY KIDS ON A LEASH, HE'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE".....WRONG!

 What about the special needs child who is still holding their parents hand, but the harness(a leash goes around the neck) is used as back up? There are other reasons paarents choose to use a harness.

No. I don't judge others who do though.

I REALLY wish someone would fill me in on why you would get angry over someone using a leash on their child.

no, just my opinion but people need to learn to control their children, they are kids not dogs

I mean there are dogs that listen to commands and they can go around without leashes, the same can be done with your kids

Because to me, it jsut looks like the parents are too lazy to work with their kids to stay by them. However if the child is special needs and doesn't understand that they have to stay by mom & dad's side, I can maybe see parents using them, but if the child is not special needs, no reason why the parents can't work with the kids.
