Contrabulous Flabtraption: Child leashes are for parents too stupid or unwilling to parent
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Why child leashesparenting should be mandatoryYour kid isn't an animal, don't treat it like one.
bourbonslurp: Before my second kid, I was in the "how about be a parent and watch your kid" crowd. My second kid...So what colors do they come in? Do they make retractable ones so you can give 'em some slack or real 'em back in? How difficult are they for the kid to take off?
Charmin Mao Tse-Bung: I'm getting a kick out of the condescending "Parents should watch their kids better" comments from folks that don't have kids. I leashed my son occasionally when we were in crowded places, not so I didn't have to watch him, but so he couldn't get very far if when he decided to bolt. He's either full throttle or asleep, with no in-between. It's not easy chasing a 3 year old through a busy airport concourse when he's small enough to slip between people much easier than an adult can.
Barnstormer: As a non-parent, can someone tell meat what age does it become unacceptable to duct-tape your kid to a chair?I mean, suppose you have to go out and just can't afford or find a baby-sitter? Is the duct-tape method really that bad?
Fafai: Contrabulous Flabtraption: Child leashes are for parents too stupid or unwilling to parentAgreed. 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.
llortcM_yllort: umad: Why child leashes breeding licenses should be mandatory.FTFY subbyHow the hell would you even enforce such a thing? What do you do about accidental pregnancies?
Agent Smiths Laugh: cherryl taggart: Prank Call of Cthulhu: Why child leashesparenting should be mandatoryYour kid isn't an animal, don't treat it like one.You obviously haven't met my kid then. And besides, the dog listens to commands.Sounds like you should have stuck with the dog.

Nexzus: 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.
