Mom causes heated debate by putting young daughter on leash at grocery store

"I’m tired of the world being this way". Mom Alexis Solis has sparked a furious debate after revealing she keeps her daughter on a leash at the grocery store. It's not for everyone, sure, but I don't see a problem with it. Do you?


There is no such a thing as perfect parenting. What works with one child, doesn’t feel right with another, it all depends on the child’s character and how his or her parents want that child to be raised.

The truth is that, oftentimes, parents are judged because of their parenting style which is dubbed by others as wrong.

A mother named Alexis Solis, a former behavioral analysis therapist, received backlash by social media users after she released a video of herself and her daughter going shopping. The reason why is that her child was on a leash.

In no time, Alexis, who is from Los Banos, California, triggered a heated argument online as her video reached over 12 million views.

This mother of two claims she utilizes her online presence to spread awareness of child endangerment.

“I’m tired of the world being this way but I’m never tired of protecting my girls,” she captioned the clip on which she could be seen attaching a leash on her daughter’s hand.

“I’m okay looking like a crazy mom. As long as my babies are safe and thanks to everyone I freaking love this thing.”

As expected, she was attacked by many social media users who questioned her parenting.

“I hope they leash her when she’s 50,” one person wrote.

“I hate those,” another added.

However, in a follow up video, Alexis clarified that the leash is ideal for kids who have a tendency to run away.

“I used to work with children on the spectrum. I don’t share this about myself very often, but I was an ABA therapist,” she said.  

“Something that’s common with children who have autism is they do tend to elope. If you’re not familiar with what elopement is, that’s when a child tends to wander off or run away from the parent or the environment.   

“Now, this can be very traumatic for both the child and the parent. I know that if I had this device when I was working with families, this would have made life so much safer.”
