Mister 3yr old has recently become familiar with the difference between the genders and now only wants to use the men's toilets. I find it a struggle in shops when dad isn't there to take him and there's NO way I would let him go to the men's unsupervised. Wondering what age you started to let your sons use the men's?

How old until you let DS use the men's alone?

I reluctantly let my brother at 9, then later found out a boy was assaulted by an older teenage boy just hours later in the same set of toilets. He was made to use the disabled toilets until he was a teen, after self defense classes and when he had more physical strength.

DS is 7.5 and I won't let him go by himself and I won't be anytime soon! We either use the parents room as I have a 3 yo DD as well or if it's just me and him then he comes with me
Into the ladies!

My son is 6 and there is no way i will let him into the mens toilet by himself. I'm gonna try and keep it that way for as long as i can. MIL on the other hand let him go into the mens by himself when he was only 4!! I almost hit the roof when i found out

I definitely try to take DS to the disabled whenever I can but sometimes when he's bursting at the seams (which he usually is, holds on til the last minute!) and it's occupied I take him to the ladies. He's still only little so I don't feel awkward, but wondering what age it does start to become awkward !
