    Default Little boys in the Ladies toilets?

    At what age do you think a boy is too old to be still using the Ladies toilets?

    At what age did you start letting your boy use the Mens toilets?

    My eldest son is 7 1/2 and I still take him into the women's toilets with me. I'll stop when I feel comfortable letting him go in the men's alone - no idea when that will be yet!

    I take my 7 year old and 9 year old brothers to the ladies with me, unless my 12 year old brother is with us too and then they go with him.

    When they want to and I'm comfortable with it, is my answer. Probably around 10.

    I have let my 6yo go to the men's once but I was extremely uncomfortable with it and stood outside the door the whole time. Standing there didn't make me feel any better about it at all.

    I use the disabled toilet or go to the parents room instead.

    I just saw this thread, and remembered something that has always stuck with me. I remember, a friend’s father saying to me (who has been a police officer for 30 years) that he wouldn’t ever consider letting a primary school aged boy (up to 12) go into the boys toilet alone these days, especially in a city. He always said if they must go by themselves, send them into the disabled (where there is only 1), too many monsters out there that lurk in bathrooms. More than you’d ever think.

    I use the disabled toilets whenever I can and make my boys do the same. I wouldn't take my 12 year old son into the women's toilets (and he wouldn't want to!!) but I am not comfortable him going alone either. A few times, if there is no disabled toilet available, I have sent my 2 boys into the mens together - I make them go and tell me if there is anyone in there first. I wouldn't let any of them go alone.

    Probably 12, when boys naturally probably wouldn't want to go in the women's anyway.

    I still take my 4 and 7 year olds into the womens toilets. I get some feral looks at times but meh.. whatever! Why would should i have to compromise my childrens safety?
    I'm not sure what the ideal age would be to let them go into the mens toilets alone. I spose maybe around 12? before they hit those teenage years. My 7 year old is already asking to use the mens toilets alone but i'm not comfortable with it.
