I personally believe that all children should be put on leashes! Sure some of them are cute; i'll admit it...but i don't respond kindly to being trampled!
They should at least be banned from coffee shops! (what parent in their right mind gives a 6 year old coffee anyways...i need sanctuary somewhere from these little hellions!)

As a matter of curiosity, do you have children of your own?

I couldn't agree more!! I love kids, teach them when my health allows, but hate having to ask them if their parents had any children who lived! I also hate being propelled into using my teacher frown and telling them to find their parents before I do. biggrin.gif

When our children were small, we almost always kept them on a leash. Some people got upset and said how dare we treat our children as animals by keeping them on a leash. But many parents with young children asked us where they could get a child harness or leash for their little one. I can't run after my children. So as they were learning about not wondering too far and roads and other dangers the only way I had to keep them safe was to put a harness or leash on them. They could go so far and no more. In fact it got to the place when each child was at that stage if they wanted to go out or knew we were going out they would bring me their harness. The only one of our children that rarely wore a harness was Jean-Thomas. He never wondered as most children do. He wore his harness only if we went in the lake. I once asked him why and he told me so when the big wave comes I won't get lost under it.

I used to think that leashes on children were cruel and demeaning but I came to see that it really is a safety measure, especially for toddlers. What convinced me first was watching the pre-school teacher at the school for the deaf where I used to work trying to keep control over 5 or 6 kids who couldn't hear her call and in some cases wouldn't have paid any attention if they could have heard her. But even with hearing kids leashes eliminate the "I just took my eyes off of her for a second." tragedies.

The first time I saw a leash used on kids was when my oldest brother and his wife had their twin boys. It was the only way Sybil could take the two toddlers anyway and still keep track of them. I still wish more parents would follow suit - especially when I see some little tyke running to keep up with his mom in the Walmart parking lot. I guess she thinks she's young and can make more when that one gets run over. Tragic!

I've got three kids. Two in their teens and one in his early twenties. Some days they still act as if they should be tied down for good! rolleyes.gif

Makes me wonder what Brian May really had in mind when he wrote "Tie Your Mother Down". Perhaps he was leashed as a tot?

Actually, if you compare the visibility issues involved with the huge modern SUV's, pickup trucks and Hummers to the old family station wagons and sedans as people are backing up in parking lots, and then knowing how quickly a child can dart behind a moving vehicle, perhaps leashes or similar should be mandatory.

As I walked toward a grocery store entrance one afternoon, a woman in a humongous truck asked me to tell her if anyone was behind her before she backed out. That's scary.

There should be harnesses or leashes for all small children. I would go for a leash law for children. They can get away from you and into danger so quickly. We always had a harness for our children when they were small. Now someone would most likely get you for child abuse. You are treating that child like an animal. Hey! You don't have little ones. I would rather them be safe and on a leash I can keep them from disappearing, running into the street, or getting too close to the water or other dangers. Wish sometimes I could put a leash on my 9 year old or maybe put her in cage to keep her out of trouble. We should have cages for teens and pre-teens.
Harnesses for little ones are the best things to have, problem is in most places they are hard to come by.

At least the leacshes for kids now are a little more like some designer deal Not like the ones my sis used on her twin boys. Cages for teenagers would be so cool - let them out when they are about 25 lol.gif lol.gif

I think some wealthier folks used to send their kids away to boarding or military school. Kinda like an off-site cage? After boarding school, then college and grad school - that all lasts til around 25, right?

I think that only way that kids, little or otherwise, will grow up healthy, and nice, is for the love and protection that comes from a mother, father, or both. NOT a leather or rope leash or metal cage. Home school is also at least 60% better for the individual child then public school. I understand the need some mothers feel for protection of there child, but the easy, and child loving answer in my mind is, don't have more kids then you can handle.
