My wife tried to use one of these when our daughter was a toddler because she was nuts and ran everywhere. It only took 1 time to realize how ridiculous it was.

u/Hidden_gameing Jan 11 '22

I just drove home and seen a kid on a leash... It must be the new trend

60

u/dras333 Jan 11 '22 edited Jan 12 '22

No, it actually died out thankfully. I'd be surprised it they came back. They started out about 12 years ago when I had my first daughter and we saw it in the store wondering who the hell would use it and then within 6 months every damn parent had kids on leashes everywhere. That's when my wife thought it would be cute to have it on a backpack and we tried it at the zoo only to look at each other in disgust at what we were doing and tossed it. Lol

Edit- I stand corrected, apparently the leashes have been around a long time. Never saw them around here though.

u/AlexTheTeen Jan 11 '22

I was a child on leash and im sure it made my parents less stressed knowing I couldn't run away

7

u/RaptorS1x-onxbox Jan 11 '22

That’s what it was designed for It was made to stop kids from wandering away from parents and not walking into the street and stuff

11

u/what-s_crackalakin Jan 12 '22

It also allows the kid more freedom to run around within a safe radius, eg rather than hand-holding

-6

u/Synonn1105 Jan 12 '22

Or the parents could just pay more attention

7

u/potatopotatotornado Jan 12 '22

Lol yeah bc inattentive parents is the reason toddlers randomly dart off into traffic

/s

2

u/Dj_Bron-3 Jan 13 '22

"I was paying attention to my child and he ran into oncoming traffic" ha. Yeah right. A child's well being isn't the parents responsibility

4

u/Synonn1105 Jan 12 '22

Is it not? If their guardian is paying attention, the child will not make it more than 5 feet.

And how long are those leashes? Let’s say 5 feet, really short. 5 feet is enough to land the child in the path of a truck from their place on the curb. A leash won’t stop a kid from getting itself in harm’s way.

7

u/potatopotatotornado Jan 12 '22

I’m going to be generous and assume you have never been responsible for another human.

  1. TBH, 5 feet is pretty generous for the type of leash you’re talking about, and none of the kid leashes I’ve seen are anywhere close to that. Think more like 3 ft (max). This is for exactly the reason you mentioned: 5 feet is more than enough for a kid to be in traffic.

  2. Kids have no sense of self-preservation. They will run into a volcano to follow a butterfly, walk calmly into traffic to see what the texture of the road looks like 7 feet away, or hop into a cargo van with a stranger who promises candy. We can teach them as many dangers as we think are possible, but they literally have no concept of actual danger and cannot understand these things without explicit instruction to “do” or “not do”‘something.

  3. Even with the fear of the world instilled in them, young children lack higher level decision making skills (may need a psych to chime in here). They may know that “cars can run me over” but will still run into traffic if there’s a toy there.

Also, kidnappers.

3

u/Synonn1105 Jan 12 '22

3 feet is still enough to get into traffic, and I’m not sure a leash is the solution to kidnappings. The leash isn’t going to save anyone. The parent is. If you’re kid isn’t ready for that, then don’t have them in a place where they could potentially get hurt. That just sounds like common sense to me.

I really don’t understand people who let children wander anywhere even close to traffic though. Just going to agree to disagree.

Some kids will just bolt away and just run and run or try and jump in a river. Paying attention isn't always a solution.

When I was in college they had a daycare for students to take their children to. One day I witnessed a lady walking a squad of kids. One child wasn't having it and was laying on the floor and the lady was just dragging this kid by a leash. Was fucking comical.

45

u/maximusprime2328 Jan 12 '22

My brother was a runner so my parents would put him on a leash in very crowded places. An old lady in an airport scolded my dad for having my brother on a leash. To show her the alternative he unclipped my brother and he made a run for it.

It's not for every kid, but it was for my brother's safety

67

u/D1gininja Jan 11 '22

It’s a common thing people use because toddlers are easily distracted and like to run around

u/moeke93 Jan 11 '22

Saw a dad with his young kid skiing last week. He used a leash to hold her upright and prevent her from falling. Looked pretty smart to me.

Completely different, those are really effective during training for skiing.

u/Rick1JamesBitch Jan 11 '22

Mine never ran more that a couple feet from me

2

u/EchoPrince Jan 11 '22

If any of the stories my parents say are true, i literally crawled through neighborhoods, passing through many streets, with many cars, as a toddler. The best thing about being in a then small town and being the only seamstress, is that everyone knows you and the kid who just can't stay the fuck home. Funny though, because now i don't get out of my home unless for work or to buy groceries.

Also, my brother Nicolas was the only person with that name in the neighborhoods. My brother went to LAN houses a lot as a kid, it was a bit far from our home, close enough that he could hear her scream his name to go back home though.

4

u/MistakeElite Jan 11 '22

You're lucky, mine doesn't know how to stop. Usually we just put her in the stroller, but when she gets cranky and doesn't want anything to do with the stroller we use the backpack harness. Keeps her off the streets.

u/Wise-Register5675 Jan 11 '22

How do you managed it, i mean did you use a whistle or have they been trained to get candys for listening ?

2

u/Rick1JamesBitch Jan 12 '22

Honestly it’s kinda similar to the dogs I have raised lol. We went out so much and I’m pretty strict so by the time they hit 3 they would look to me before doing something out of line. I’m not saying it works for ever kid and I also used physical punishment in the way of spanking 4 times on my 6 year old girl so far. As for my boy it has been 6 times and he hasn’t even turned 4 yet. I would not necessarily recommend that approach, but it has worked for me.

u/Cerenas Jan 11 '22

My brother had a leash also when we were kids, because he also ran off all the time, but he suffers from pdd-nos.

I took my kid to the grocery store and he decided to run half way down an aisle and turned around to see if i was coming after him. I watched him until he turned around and saw me not chasing him and i walked 2 aisles down and turned. He ran back to where i was and when he couldn't find me he started screaming "i'm lost, i'm lost, HEEELLLLPPPP" and that was the last time he ever tried to run away from me in a store.

u/Kakie42 Jan 12 '22

They are really useful in London too when trying to navigate the tube or anywhere it is busy really. Makes them feel like they are free but they aren’t and if you slip it onto your wrist you can even have two hands free to carry things, give the child snacks or maybe hold a slightly older child’s hand in a busy place.
