Being a parent is difficult. Like, challenging. Anyone who tells you differently is either nostalgically romanticizing the past or doesn’t have children.

There’s no instruction manual on how to raise a child who is misbehaving or going beyond what’s acceptable, or on how to act appropriately in certain situations.

Maybe this uncertainty is more of a source of conflict than the right parenting style. It is increasingly typical to come across internet forums where people fight vehemently over how to raise their kids.

Whatever the case, a mother who was caught pulling her infant kid through an airport by a leash around his chest became embroiled in a furor of scandal. The 2019 event was captured on video and uploaded to TikTok, sparking an intense debate among online users.

If you’re a parent, you’ve probably had to deal with situations when your child has tried to test your tolerance.

Each of us handles these situations differently, and I don’t think any of us can genuinely claim to have handled them flawlessly every time. Most of the time, we behave in a way that we think is best for us and nobody else.

However, a woman who was seen on tape pulling her kid through an airport while wearing a leash was perceived by some as going too far.

When TikToker @cacadoodledoo83 (Erica Shupe Hall) posted the video of herself leaving Cancun, Mexico’s airport with the caption “Leaving Cancun is tough…,” it ignited a heated discussion.I understand, my friend.

The video received a great deal of attention right once, with millions of views and a plethora of divergent comments.

It looked like the woman in the video was trying to get her child to follow her. When the child flattened on the ground and refused to move, she began to pull him over the carpet with a leash fastened to a harness around his body.

A veritable conflagration of viewpoints surfaced in the comments area.
I couldn’t bring my kid onto the unclean floor because of my OCD. I suppose I’m weird, but I’d rather pick him up,” Delicia, one commenter, commented.

“A terrible parent. Another person said, “That is child abuse,” JennyLisg.

“I just carry mine at that point,” a third person wrote. I refuse to lug them across that unclean floor.

“I think there’s a difference between using a harness for your child’s safety and dragging them on the ground,” remarked a fourth. I would never harm my dog in the same way that I would never harm my child.

Although many people objected to the mother’s strategies, others sprang to her support.

Sophia, one viewer, said, “Lmao! Mama, do what you have to do.

One more person stated: “I’m not saying it’s right. I’m expressing that I get it! Show me a flawless parent who has never erred in judgment or who hasn’t taken all necessary precautions to get by each day.

Shimona Jade Kennett continued, saying, “I don’t see any problems with that. She could have carried him, too, but he appears content to be tugged along. The child would have been creating a scene if he had been [distressed].

“I had a harness and leash for my five kids,” a fourth commenter said. I never misplaced them. They never suffered any harm. They enjoyed their liberty and feeling protected without needing to grasp my hand. Although I don’t remember ever needing to drag them in this manner, I can see how it would occur.

While most people can agree that wearing a leash and harness to keep your child safe and reduce the likelihood that they will get lost tends to be a contentious topic among parents when it comes to using them first.

How do you feel about using a harness? Do you think this mother behaved improperly? Please feel free to voice your thoughts in the comment area.
