Dad divides the internet after taking his 5-year-old quintuplets for a stroll with a leash.

A Kentucky father’s unconventional parenting methods have generated a social media debate.

Jordan Driskell, 31, received harsh criticism after revealing that he walks his five-year-old quintuplets on a leash.

The father-of-five posted a video of himself leading his chained children down the street. “Come walk a mile in my shoes,” he captioned the post, in response to those who “judge” him for employing child leashes.

After dealing with infertility, Driskell and his wife Brianna, 34, welcomed their quintuplets Zoey, Dakota, Hollyn, Asher, and Gavin.

The couple is now sharing their experience of parenting five small children on social media. However, not everyone thought it was appropriate to place a restraining harness on their children. Many people criticized Driskell for his leash, stating he was treating his children like dogs.

“Bro I get what you’re doing but kids are not animals and should not be treated like them if you can’t control your kids don’t have them,” one person wrote. Another commented: “I totally don’t like how to use kids with leaches it’s not like they are puppies let them be themselves.”

“Just make them hold hands gosh,” added a third.

Many more people, however, came to Driskell’s defense, defending his decision to keep his children on a leash for their own safety.

“I don’t see anything wrong with this. Dogs wear leashes because they do not grasp the dangers of the road. “Neither do toddlers,” one person observed.

“I can barely keep up with one toddler!” wrote another. It’s incredible that you can manage 5 safely. “This individual should have kept their mouth shut.”

“Forget the haters,” a third added. “You do whatever you have to do to keep those precious ones safe!”

Others, on the other hand, admitted to have enjoyed wearing a harness and leash when they were younger.

“I LIKED those as a kid, idk why you shouldn’t have one,” one person commented. “Bro when I was little I begged my mom for one,” another wrote.
