      I “leashed” my daughter and she loved it. she felt more secure and would hand me her “pack pack” (puppy shaped backpack with a three foot long “tail”). it had less to do with worrying about her running off (which was admittedly a concern, because that’s what kids do) as with the fact that it’s VERY easy to break a hold between an adult and a child hand. if someone wanted my child, and she was only holding my hand, it would be way too easy to slip her tiny little hand out of mine. however, anyone who wanted to take her while she was on her leash, would have a hell of a time. they would have to either unbuckle her harness, unhook her “leash”, or somehow get it off my hand BEFORE I stopped them and kicked their ass for trying. good luck with that :-) in short, it made us both feel safer and she would rather walk than ride in her stroller … also, some of those kids who look like they’re leaning or pulling away, may just be playing around. my daughter used to love to lean against her leash. she thought it was really neat how far she could tip over without falling, and she always knew that mommy wasn’t going to let her fall.  I say, as long as you’re not using it in place of responsible parenting, but as a helper, go for it!
