Child safety harnesses: Yes or no for you?

Walking through a busy shopping centre can be quite daunting, but imagine if you also have to be on the lookout for a toddler running around?

In comes a lead for children known as a child safety harness.

Anele and the Club on 947 weigh in on the leads for children

Anele Mdoda was at Sandton City recently and noticed a mum with her two children, who were are leads, and it looked like 'she was riding a carriage'. And she commented how she would never get used to seeing it but also she is not against it.

Thembekile Mrototo commented how when he was younger, his mother had a look and he knew that he couldn't run around.

Something about it just looks... Unkind.

Listener reaction

I have twins. Twin daughters (they are old now). But you have no idea. But just like your last caller. How they disappear between clothes and you cannot find them.

The advantages of toddler leads

More than two children
The safety child harness helps to keep the child safe as the guardian goes about their business in the shops especially if one of the children is hyperactive. Taking care or looking after one child can be stress, now imagine if it's more than one child at a public space.

Children with special needs
A child with autism or ADHD can be, at times, unpredictable or impulsive and a lead will help the guardian to keep them safe from harm.
