If we’re home I can loosen a bit because I know where the danger zones are and I can easily control the events (plus did I mention our house is teeny weeny?). But when we’re somewhere else, I make sure I’m (or her Dad) within safe distance whenever my daughter takes a step.
I don’t even trust my young BIL (or SIL for that matter) to safely care for her because I do believe he’s still too young to have a fatherly instinct.
How about you how do you keep your kids safe when in public?
Another good post is about using a leash. Watch out for that.
