I was at the local grocery store today and I saw a mother with her child. The child had a harness on and there was a leash attached to it. Now, I am not sure if there was a reason for this but none that I observed. She was holding the little girl’s hand in addition to having her leashed. I don’t have children (and maybe some of you who do will comment) but I can’t see why you would want to leash them unless they were so fast and destructive that it was for thier own safety. This little girl just seemed to be learning to walk and the leash seemed really bizarre. Maybe it is just me.
