So...it's the method of attachment that's the issue? What about the wristband tethers? No dogs here have leashes velcroed around their legs.

well that's not an argument either because the harnesses don't go around the kid's neck!

I need confirmation - does Ohio have kids? How old?

Watch the video and tell me what, exactly is so bad about it. (i feel like i'm talking to sarah palin!)


kids are not animals!!!!!!!!!! They should not be treated as such. Control ones children and they would not have to be treated as an animal. (excluding children with disabilities.)

Soooo....basically you're not trying to change anyone's opinion. If they want to be bad parents who treat their children like animals that's their business.....Got it. Thanks.

You can have fantastic control over your child and they still get separated from you. I am going to repost what I posted in post #62: Have you seen how quickly a child can get separated from her parents in a crowd? These kids are small and can squeeze between people where you think there is no space. Besides that have you ever been in a crowded place and suddenly a surge of people come through and no matter how hard you try, you get separated from your group for a minute? The crowd goes through and you are reunited with your group. It happens very easily. When it is a small child that gets separated like that, they can get very scared and run and hide.

They aren't used just to control children. They aren't a surrogate parent. It is a safety measure. I would really like to know if you have ever been in the scenario above.

as a parent you should have eyes on your child at ALL times. ALL TIMES. If there is a big crowd and your young child is liable to get seperated either have a stroller or hold their hand until the crowd passes. DUH

How, exactly, are you going to control your children? Got any theories on how you are going to have the only kids on the planet that don't scoot off into a crowd? (Not taking them to Disneyland doesn't count. The same thing can happen at the mall.) Part 2: How many hands do you have?
