From the look of this child's legs, he could have some birth defect and may possibly be retarded in which case the child would not be able to behave and is safer on a restraint.

My mother said she always used a leash when I was was very young because if she looked away for just a second I could disappear. That was 60 years ago....safety for your child is never demeaning to anyone, and your child will not be snatched away from you for sure.

The main argument against - it's demeaning to the child. The counter-argument is that most kids are oblivious to the social constructs involved - they just want to run and play and exert some form of independence. I never did this to my kids when they were little, but frankly I'm not opposed to it if a kid is especially energetic. In those cases, the parents choices are to leave them at home/with a babysitter, strap them into a stroller (they always seem to break free), or to use a leash/harness like this. I think really, the loser is the parent who has to deal with all the dirty looks.

Clearly you have no experience with kids.

I have lived my entire life in Europe, and I have personally never seen this ...

Exactly. The really quick ones would be under a bus in no time. (First hand experience)

It actually is a very good thing for kids who are apt to run away unexpectedly and get hurt or cause an accident...or worse. In Europe, one sees this often. Better than sitting in a pushchair all the time!

I hate to see this done to kids!
