A dad has been slammed online for using a leash to restrain his 5-year-old quintuplets.

Jordan and Briana Driskell say it’s difficult to keep an eye on all their children so they leash them together while running errands. Jordan uploaded the video to his Instagram with the caption ‘Come walk a mile in my shoes‘, which received some negative reactions from social media users. “Those kids are way too old to be walked on a leash like a dog.” While other people were more supportive. “Keep it up Dad! They are safe, you are sane and naysayers are stupid.”

Dan can empathise as a father of two. “I know how hard it is to walk to the shops with just Archer an Ruby. One you don’t need a leash, five I get it.” When she was a child Kirste’s mum put her on a leash. “It was not considered such a bad thing back in the day.” Kirste even tried using it on her own daughter “She just faceplanted and refused to get up. I think it’s okay for people to do it if they feel it is necessary for their kids’ safety.”
