have you ever encounter seeing a kid mostly in toddler years in the mall wearing a strap in the hand while the other end is being held by mommy?...it seems like when you're taking your your dog for a walk and you have the strap in the dog's neck but in this case the mommy is holding that strap maybe because she doesn't want the child to get lost..i've seen it many times in a mall in ortigas....i just wanna ask you guys if its okay do this because it really bothers me whenever i see one...thnx..

Naka-relate ka ba? Mag post ng katanungan o payo dito

huhuhu... ayoko din 'to! I hate seeing Mommies doing this... I pity those cute lil ones na nakatali... though I know for some Mommies kasi fashion ata sa kanila 'to... I think... with those kikay straps... maybe it's just their way of showing their fashion statement... pero I don't think it's proper... straps/chains, for me, are just for pets like dogs/cats while strolling sa mall... poor kids...

 :) thank you prettyinpurple...same here i was wondering the 1st time i see it "eto na ba ang uso ngaun?"...diba parang pangit tingnan kasi parang kawawa tingnan mga bata...the reason why we take them in the mall is for them to enjoy and explore because thats one way for them to learn..how can they do that if they're being strapped.. :(

Hi Sis Vera,

Hindi ko rin type ang ganyang style pero kung sobrang likot naman ang bata (di paawat) at may bibilhin talaga ako at magisa lang akong adult i guess gagamit din ako nang strap pero kung tapos na ako mamili pwede ko na tanggalin yung strap sa kanya.

ako din di ko gusto yung ganon, parang kawawa naman yung bata, parang limited lang yung galaw niya, di niya naeenjoy.. tama ka mom prettyinpurle pag dogs lang ang strap na ganon, kahit fashion pa yun, di pa din maganda tignan :(

Siguro for safety purposes na din kaya they hand strap their kids while malling. Syempre nga naman madami tao sa mall at sa kalikutan ng kids nila e baka bigla na lang mawala anak nila, lalo na pag busy ang mommy sa pamimili. Pero kung fashion statement lang, bakit pa?

Personally, I will never do that for my son. 'Pag nandyan kami sa Pinas, di ako pumupunta sa mall na kami lang ng anak ko. Palagi ko kasama either ate ko or nanay ko para there's someone who will look after my son if ever maging busy ako sa pamimili. Honestly, takot kasi ako dahil sa mga news before dyan about dun sa mga nangunguha ng bata.

I agree with you, pang dogs lang ang strap.

I disargee on using a hand strap for the babies... korek kayo, nagmukhang dog tuloy yun mga kiddo pag ganun...

let them enjoy the outside world... kahit nga nahihirapan akong humabol sa anak ko everytime nasa mall kami... he enjoys it kasi...

although for some mommies na gumagamit ng child safety harness and handstrap,their primary concern is the safety of their kids especially sa mga crowded areas. in my pov,di pa din ako ganun ka-open to use it even if it's the trend nowadays.although madami naman siguro designs without being too obvious na harness sya pero i would still go for the traditional or conventional way na hawak si baby or nasa stroller.

I wouldn't do that sa 18 months old son ko, i'm just thankful na everytime lumalabas kami behave naman sya plus di rin ako lumalabas na walang kasama para kung medyo busy ako,there is someone with me na pwede magtingin kay xian.

i think ok lang naman for other parents kung gusto nila,even if it's a fashion statement or primarily for the safety or their kids,it's up to them.we just need to be more responsible everytime kasama mga anak natin.

Para sa akin okay lang ang straps since it would really help when an area suddenly gets 'congested' and baby might get the sudden urge to run.

I dont think its a fashion statement or just uso or something. This has been used for such a long time in other countries, we are just catching up. I have the harness and the hand strap. It works for me because I want my son to wander and experience things on his own without him getting lost. Or without other people picking him up and taking him away. I dont like putting him in the stroller kasi where's the fun in that? parang nakakulong lang sya dun. And when you carry him all the time, ganun din, you dont let him experience whats out there. Maybe its nakakapanibago lang, in the country where we treat dogs as dogs and not as a part of the family.

Its just a personal preference siguro. Ako I want my son to experience the world without him getting lost, and the strap and harness works for us.

first time ko nakakita ng batang naka-handstrap nagulat talaga ako. nasabi ko talga ng malakas na, "bakit ginagawang aso ang mga bata?". napatingin na lang yung nanay sa akin tapos inalis yung strap hehe.

disturbing for me ang makitang nakastrap ang isang bata. i was once so likot but i was able to explore every part of COD (yun ang isa sa sikat na mall dati). hindi din naman ako nawala.  ;)

kung for safety purposes ang straps, siguro useful sa ibang parents but i guess im not goin to use it. mas secured akong hawak ko sila or nakahawak sila sa akin.

feeling kasi natin parang pang dogs lang ang purpose ng staps.. oh well, upon reading sis ilovegabe's post, i was enlightened.. she has a point..

but the only problem is, we are not used to it..  maybe after a couple of months or year pag marami ng gumagamit nun just like strollers and carriers hindi na tayo magdadalawang isip na gumamit din nun..  8)
