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

    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?

    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.

    I simply told him no, I am the boss and you will use the disabled toilet, end of story. But I can be a little mean when it comes to these things.

    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!

    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 !
