I've had to use one for foster kids before. Some can be very impulsive. I've never cared if people use them unless they mis-use them. There's a woman at my park who always has her 2? year old on a leash while her older kids play

Why the sad face? You just said some kids are very impulsive.

Because she sits on the bench with her 2yr old on the leash while her older kids play, she doesn't take the 2yr old to play. He has to sit there and play with leaves and stuff.

There might be an actual reason for that. When I take my kids to the playground I let my 2 y/o go play. That's because I know she can.
Maybe there's something about this child that hinders him and you can't tell it by looking at him. He might not be capable of using the playground equipment.

Thats a good point. I try not to judge and instead think of reasons why someone would be doing that. Like if someone cuts me off I like to think there's an emergency, lol. I suppose I wish he got to swing in the baby swings. He can sit up and walk. Maybe he can't sit up with the motion though.

He could just not want to play.

Lux was like that, whenever we went to a playground or park the older 3 went to play, and she would just sit by me and play with sticks on her own. I tried very much to get her to go and play, id put her on the swings, or I would climb on things with her, but no, she didnt want anything to do with it, I could never figure out why.

She grew out of it eventually, by the time she was school age she was off and playing.

I was so that person prekids that said they would NEVER use one. I had one we have used exactly 1 time with our daughter and it was great. We were at a county fair and she could walk and was pretty darn proud of herself but she couldnt run off. I think they are fine when used correctly!
