I've contemplated getting a leash for my niece.
She's 15 months old and has absolutely no fear. Around the time she learned to walk, she learned to run. Now she's a climber and has no problem scaling anything with ledges. Her balance isn't the best and so those things terrify me.
I don't think I'd ever get one for her though. Any confinement or restraint sends her into screaming fits. She just wants to be free to play and explore.
So, I'll always...
