When my kids were 6 months and 18 months I could never use a regular toilet when I was out alone with them and a parents room was unavaliable. I wouldn't dream of leaving them outside the door so I'm not sure why you can't respect my right to be able to use a toilet with dignity (closed door for my privacy) while keeping my children safe. It feels like your acting like the entitled one to me. Why is your families dignity and safety more important than mine?
Gah my head hurts.
I would consider a parent with several small children to be just as deserving of an accessible-toilet as a traditionally disabled person. No disrespect to people with disabilities but it's pretty hard managing a couple of babies and a toddler in a shopping centre toilet all on your own. I'm very anti people using disabled parking spaces but the accessible loos are there for people with special needs and I think wrangling several children fits in that category.
Luckily it's rare we parents need to use a disable loo thanks to parent rooms being available at most large public places.
Anyone think we are the only one's with small children who need to use a toilet when out if the house? Lol my mother had 4 kids and my grandmother 8 not sure what they did when they needed to duck up to the shops with the kids in tow & needed to go to the loo???
