Another bowler who ran to help brought the toddler back to his parents.

Fail.

Child leashes are for parents too stupid or unwilling to parent

Dear White People,

Stop putting your kids on leashes.

Sincerely,

Everybody Else

P.S. This story is less "put your kid on a leash" and more "don't bring your toddler to a bowling alley."

they should've thrown another ball down the lane, that would've dislodged him

Toddlers make excellent bowling balls and/or pins.

If I remember my Freudian psychology correctly, this child will grow up to have an aversion to women with large mouths.
 
2014-02-13 03:35:25 PM
But then the leash would have clogged up the ball return...

Agreed. I'm going to put my kid on a leash and probably stunt his development because some other people can't watch their kids, yeah ok.

*Waves*  Hi!  That was probably me.

Fun fact.  The bar I'm going to tonight gives out pull tabs for every drink you buy.

It's Eau Claire Wisconsin. The only things to do are drinking, bowling, and drinking while bowling. I think the median age in that town goes up or down 40 years depending on whether the college kids are in town.

/Grew up there
 
2014-02-13 03:44:35 PM
Meh.  It doesn't harm the kid, it's practical, and if the tension disappears you know to look down and see what the rug rat is up to.  Heck half the time the kid seems to enjoy it.  Plus it keeps the little hell spawn from dashing into traffic on a walk.

/Doesn't have kids though.
//However wouldn't hesitate to leash any of my niblings.

Before I had a kid, I would look at parents with their kids on leashes and shake my head, wondering how hard I would be hit if I asked "does he know any tricks"

Now that my little guy is 28 months old, I do have an understanding why a parent would use a child leash. I would never, ever do it, but I do understand.

Have twins and say that.  When our twins were about 2 1/2, there was a picture in the newspaper of my wife with the twins on leashes, one going north, at full speed, the other headed south.

Just having my son being born last week, I should be learning more and more on Fark of what not to do as a parent, but really, most of the parents featured in articles on here just lack common farking sense.

Bowling's insane! bowling is crazy time.

You want a rush? Drop a bowl on your toe my friend, talk about a rush,
you'd be throbbing, you'd see visions.

How the hell would you even enforce such a thing?  What do you do about accidental pregnancies?

When my daughter was little we had a leash.  It wasn't one of the harnesses, it just went around her wrist and one of ours.  We called it a "keeper" because it kept us together when we were in crowded places.  It also kept her from dodging away in the grocery store.  At that age, kids are faster than the Flash and it only takes five seconds or less and they're three aisles away in the store looking at something.

Sorry, you fail for using "28 months old".  Your kid is two.

To all of you who don't have kids or have never had a child do something unexpected - sh*t happens. Some kids are little houdinis and quick.
Parents should have caught him before he got that far, but that's another story.

You obviously haven't met my kid then.  And besides, the dog listens to commands.

Or for children who have Houdini-like abilities.  My mother HAD to have my younger sister on a kind of harness when we were little (back in the mid-70s) because my sister had this constant habit of running off.  Plus her IQ, last I knew, was borderline retardation.  She'd run out in the street if you didn't watch her.

She didn't need one with me, and there's only a year's difference between me and my sister.  Unwilling to parent?  Eh...not likely.

Lol.  He could even get away with two and a half, but yeah, stop using months once your kid is one unless you're talking to a pediatrician.

Sounds like you should have stuck with the dog.

I used to look down on parents who used leashes until I had a VERY active child who, at some point, squirmed out of my grasp and ran headlong for a two story escalator and this gigantic mall.  I got the back of her jacket and yanked her back just before she tumbled down the thing.  At that point. leashes looked like a very practical accessory and while I never actually got one, I never sneered at people using them again.
