Dear Random People,
Have you seen parents “leashing” or “harnessing” their little one’s? I was first introduced to the idea about 2 years ago when my close friend gave me her Bear Harness she used for her child. I thought it was funny at first….really….im going to leash my child…? Then, I contemplated the idea. “What if i were at the mall and my child decides to run off?”(this by the way has happened and in a hospital as well). My biggest concern was the stares i would possibly get from other people. I also thought, “what would other parents and non-parents think of me?” , but the fact of the matter is, is that this is my child and if he or she feels the need to run off at 2 or 3 years old, at least i know he or she is only few feet away.
This harness is good for mothers who have more than one child, who happens to be a wild child. I like to see anyone try to wrangle toddlers and do various other mommy duties if they arent parents! 🙂 It can be tough and nerve wrecking, I have been there and done that. Its a security thing i believe. 2012 is not the 80’s, 90’s, or early 2000’s when you could let your child roam freely with little caution. Children’s security is now being compromised. Too many children are being “snatched” up with no known idea of there whereabouts. I plan to protect my mine with my life, even if it means harnessing them. Im going to happily use my harness and ask the snooty parent if they want to try it. 🙂
Have you used a harness/leash on your child? Did you get any crazy looks? Do you think its a horrible idea, or great for children’s security?
