    I've seen 10 year olds in there. I guess when they hit puberty I would stop. My brother was happy with the disabled toilets, but by 7 or 8 could hold on.

    not till they're old enough to be out without me.......

    Until then we use the disabled toilets...

    I don't mind O and J going in together if it's a small toilet at a park or something, but definitely not somewhere where there are lots of people.

    Never, i'd rather carry around a roll of loo paper (and a towel for privacy of course) than have them go in one of 'those' places by themselves!! No I don't know really, good question!

    I have girls, but they stay with their Dad half the week and NO WAY does he let them go in by themselves (oldest is 6). He always takes them to the disabled or parents room. I am glad everyone else on here seems to be saying 8+ I don't feel like I am unreasonably paranoid now (some of DD1's friends are allowed to go by themselves, even a year or so ago.) I have had an experience of coming across a man hiding in female toilet before though. It scared me at 15. A young child should not have to come across that all by themselves

    13 and I'm still nervous about it. I think if DS wasn't such a tall, well build boy who looks alot older than 13 I'd still be taking him into the ladies room with me.

    At least till 10. And it would be 'if you're not out in 2 minutes I'm coming in after you!'

    IF we are out as a family DSS(12) takes DS (8) to the disabled toilets and waits outside - DD (11 today) goes to the disabled as well with someone watching... DSS goes to the disabled by himself - i am a bit of a stress head - if they are longer than 3 minutes the hunt is on lol.. I TRUST NO ONE
