No. I really don't understand the hype. The child isn't being hurt. Plus they can run around more than in a stroller and the parent doesn't have to worry. I imagine its nice for people with several young children too.

I never used one, but I don't judge parents who do. I work in the school system and I know some children are runners, so I am glad the child harnesses are there for the people who do need them. So I don't view bad or good it is just a tool.

I don't know if it's bad, but it's just weird.

My parents used one for my brother who had pretty bad ADHD, in places where he could easily get injured if he dashed off (which he always tried to do). They didn't use one with me, because I was a placid little thing. I approve of what they did.

I think it's rather degrading, but I get the functionality of it. Maybe in some circumstances I could support it, but in general I'm not a fan.

Same. I suppose there might be instances, but usually? It's degrading

I can understand the use for kids with mental disabilities, young kids (1-4) and if the family is at a crowded place like a fair but I see these leashes at the nearly empty mall or grocery stores. What happened to holding your child or discipline?

I find it cute but only until about age 5 or so, before they may start to feel embarrassed.

What ever happened to holding your parents had or the edge of the cart or their shirt?

I only understand it if the child has a mental disability and cannot handle not wandering.
