Would you use a kid leash?

I definitely will be. I'm scared of strangers snatching up your kid, my kid messing up someone's stuff in a store, or my kid causing the death of an innocent animal.

Updates:
People, I am talking about the adorable backpacks with leashes attached to them! Not collars and leashes. Holy crao, is that what y'all were thinking?

  • Yes I would. The masses will yell child abuse and how it will destroy their fragile little feelings and how cruel it is. But I say horse nuggets to them all. Not being super protective in this stinking sick world to me is a lot more cruel and heartless than keeping them close and safe

  • Of course. If my kid is a dasher they can be gone in an instant. Of course you try to teach them to stay near you or hold your hand but some kids need it. I'd only use it if I really needed it

  • Jesus H. Christ. I'd rather cut off my hand. I refuse to treat my child as some kind of pet. That's incredibly humiliating and degrading. It's also a completely paranoid behavior on behalf of the parents. I'm assuming you're American, since no other "civilized" country would possibly come up with something so insane as putting a leash on your child.

    • When your kid falls in a gorilla cage or is almost kidnapped when they're standing right next to you let me know.

    • I did have an attempt to kidnap me when I was 8 . My dad just so happen to be right behind the guy when he gabbed me. My dad stomped a mud hole in his arse while the police was called. It turned out that later we found out he was a wanted child molester so paranoia applies to those who have never been given reason to feel a fear of what ever the case is calling for. Now I don't personally know anyone else that has experienced it

  • Definitely not. Kids need to learn for themselves. A leash won't accomplish anything.

    • Then it stems from bad parenting. Kids need to be taught not to run away.

    • When you have yourself a coulee running around in the store , get back to me. And if it's anywhere near the toy isle Lord help you

  • Yes even if I only use it on occasion.

    • Disrespecting someone's opinion because you don't agree shows immaturity. People should be able to state what they think w/o others getting mad.

    • Alright

      I don't believe in child leashes.

    • Oh okay

  • Your kid is going to develop anxiety issues if you don't realize you can't protect them from everything and try to do so

    • Yeah probably. I've thought of that. But I'm a paranoid person.

    • Show All
    • Yeah, you're definitely paranoid. You may love your child, and your heart is there, but you're doing it wrong. I don't want to tell you how to raise your child, but what you're doing is wrong no doubt. You are psychologically scarring your child. Why would you do that to your own kid?

    • Because I'm scared of my kids being like my sister and going off with strangers. Because I'm scared of someone snatching them when they're right there. I want to be able to do what I can to prevent that. If the world changed I would reconsider.

  • thats horrible,, i hope your ovaries fail you before you can have any poor children

  • If it's a chest harness and not a neck collar yes.

    Those who say "Kids need to learn for themselves" will be the first screaming with regretful tears when their kid is hit by a speeding car.

    Sometimes new ideas are worth checking out, try it, it won't kill you or your kid.

    • I saw a kid running around today at work. He was wrecking havoc. His dad strapped the book bag on him and he couldn't go anywhere. If I could woop my kid without people saying abuse I definitely would. But I will most certainly use a backpack.

  • Probably not, but I'm not opposed to the idea. I've watched two videos recently of attempted kidnappings. In broad daylight. That's scary.

    • You're saying it was the way she was nurtured. If she turned out link that then you were implying my mom didn't do something right.

    • read what i said directly afterward "bad friends, possibly". kids are affected by *everyone* they hang around.

  • I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I would rather have my kid on a leash than lost, kidnapped, or worse.

    • By leash I assume your mean the cute backpack with an attachment for the parent. I would not use it all the time, but places with big crowds like New York City (especially on the train station platforms), Disney, and malls would make it safer for him or her. Some kids are just more wild than other kids and they have so much energy that even knowing right from wrong will not always keep them safe. One running burst away from a parent can be fatal.

    • When they learn how dangerous it is to go off by themselves.

  • I understand your concern, but I'm not putting a leash on my child. It just looks silly to me.

  • If I chose to have kids I would. Too much chaos in the world to trust a child alone. I see kids running around stores alone a lot. I always think what if they hurt someone? What if they destroy property or get kidnapped? Pay no mind to those who think its degrading they have no idea and just assume everything must be child abuse.
