    Help me find this please.

    I don't even know what it's called but;

    I've heard about a device that a parent would wear a thing on wrist and have it's other half on the child and if they got more than 15 feet or so apart from each other the thing on the parent's wrist would sound an alarm or some kind of alert.

    To help not lose track of your child in a public place I guess.

    Anyone know what this is?

    Can you post a link to it?

    I think what you are looking for is called 550 Paracord.

    Not really. I just know what kind of kid I was. My mother would probably have benefited from having had a choke chain, and shock collar on me.

    A bit simpler approach might be a harness/leash for the child. When I was a mite, my folks had one for me, when we went out and about. Fairly effective, given that above age two I apparently found it necessary to run everywhere ... even in shops. No marks, despite what must have been countless times when I reached the end of the rope. I'm betting a well-stocked kiddie shop ought to have such things.

    We bought one of those leashes for a trip to Disney World when my youngest was about 18 moths old. We did not want to take the chance of losing her in the crowds and she loved to walk and not be held. When we got there, we put the harness on her (I think it looked like a stuffed animal on her back). She sat down and would not move. No matter how we tried to coax her, she just sat. We ended up renting a stroller.
