Kid Leashes

I have been meaning to post on this for a loooooong time but forgot about it until I saw this atrocity today.  What sort of moron parent puts their kid on a friggin’ leash??  Are you THAT pathetic and lazy of a parent that you gotta leash your kid?  Is he/she that wild that you gotta go the zoo route and attach a rope to them?  What’s next, the pitbull muzzle? 

You know what this is don’t you? It’s the wussification of America.  These parents are so scared their little Johnnie is going to run, heaven forbid, five feet away from them.  They are frightened that some other kid is going to brush against them and maybe pass on a germ or something.   Either that or they are just too damn lazy to watch their kid or hand their hand.

Get a life, learn how to be a parent and get your kid off the leash or, better yet, just stay at home!

    Sorry, I can’t agree with you on this one. It takes ONE SECOND for a kid to let go of your hand and dart into traffic. And I KNOW from personal experience that kids don’t always WANT to hold your hand and they will fight you when they don’t want to hold your hand.

    I used a leash on Matthew for a while because he was a runner. It was more important for me to keep him safe than to worry about whether I was making him a wuss.

    Gotta disagree with Tina. I have kids. I have raised kids. It takes a firm parent to keep the kids close to you. A firm parent and good grip on their wrists.
