    I wont be comfortable sending my 10 yr old ds into the mens room by himself from stories I have heard.
    But i would also have manners and let a pregnant lady and her toddler go ahead of my child.
    As a pp mentioned it would be good if shopping centres could cater for familes in these instances.

    My boy poor got yelled at by some grumpy woman about six months ago and now will not step foot in a women's toilet.
    He's not even 8 yet and I'm not comfortable with sending him into the mens alone.

    Lol. It's funny that this thread is full of cranky parents of toddlers who are saying parents rooms should be used by parents of toddlers and babies when just the other day in the toilet thread people were saying that they would take their kids into the parents room if their child of the opposite sex was too old to use the women's. I'm assuming some of the kids ahead in line of the OP would have been in that situation. Some may have a terrible habit of not listening to their bladders and are prone to accidents, so their parents thought best to skip the queue in the regular toilet to avoid wet pants.
    You *actually* can't win at this parenting business.
    I feel like this is like the parents with prams parking. These things used to not exist and some places still don't . I have plenty of times
    -squeezed myself and 2 kids into one cubicle
    -peed with a child sitting on my lap (or strapped to my chest)
    -left the pram outside the toilet cubicle and left the door open a crack so I could see it (hello, public peeing; goodbye, dignity)
    If there is a parent's room I will probably head straight there, as I am...a parent.
    These are thoroughly modern conveniences that are great and handy to use but no one parent has a 'right' to use a parent's room more than any other parent.

    Also- CANNOT BELIEVE people are suggesting using the disabled toilets ahead of using the parent's room.
    Actually seriously? Are you people actually serious?!

    Yes. At my shopping centre the parents room have NO toilets. The disabled toilets are actually labelled children's/disabled toilets.

    SO YES THAT IS WHAT I AM SAYING!!!!!!!

    God no, take him into any toilet, disabled or women's toilets. I only have girls but I still go into the ladies room with them most of the time. If i had a 4yo son, he would be going to the ladies room with me, screw anyone with their nose out of joint over that.

    Default Parent Room Rage

    I stopped using the parents room when DS was out of nappies, he is 4 now and I just take him to the ladies with me. When number 2 arrives I will go back to using the parents room for both kids until Bub is out of nappies. Also when DS is a bit old to go in the ladies but too young to go in the men's alone I will take him to the parents room.

    I agree that parents rooms are for all parents, but in saying that if I were in there with DS say 8 years old and there was an unwell looking pregnant lady or a busting toddler I would offer for them to go first. Common courtesy!
