I just bought a wrist leash for my 2 yr. old because we almost lost her while we were dining out. I decided to buy one because I don't want to go through that feeling again. When I wore the leash around her wrist she was very happy that she's able to move freely without me holding on to her arm. But while we were strolling around, a grandma approached me and told me that I was treating my kid like a dog. I told her I had to put it on her because we almost lost her and she's a kid who just loves to explore and look around especially when we visit new places. The old lady gave me a look as if I was doing something bad to my child. What's your view on putting kids on a wrist leash?
