This is drifting toward an argument from emotion and away from science and reasoning, but this is an example of why the harness-leash decision bothers me:
I find it infuriating that this lady can’t manage her kid well enough to remove him from the Verizon store in a better way than dredging him across the thin carpet.
To be fair, parents forcefully yank their kids around all the time without requiring a leash, but somehow doing it with a harness just makes it seem that much worse. But, in no way am I trying to use this as an argument against mobility restraints for children. I just forgot to include this video in my last post, and it was one of the reasons that I was thinking about the topic.
