My kids are both very "attached" but also have neuro-developmental challenges that make public places overwhelming and panic-inducing, and which make impulse control next to impossible in such a state of mind. I think developmental maturity and temperament play more of a role in our situation.

We haven't done a harness (yet) but my son is 4.5 now and we are thisclose to getting one for him to use in specific dangerous situations. He actually has gotten much better now that little sister walks and we can all hold hands. Our biggest struggle is actually when we go to the Cotton Babies.
