    ill take him in with me as long as i want. i wouldnt be comfortable with him going into a male room by himself.

    We try to always use the disabled or parents room if they are full he will come with me full stop.

    Its not that i wouldn't trust him i dont trust society and the crazies out there

    I still take DS who is 6 yo into the toilets with me. Have never had a problem.

    Hmmm. I'm really not sure how old he will be when I feel comfortable with him going into the men's room alone... I do understand why we have separated toilets but it really is awkward when you have a child of the opposite sex who you have to take out!

    I don't understand either. Doesn't affect me if a boy is in the women's toilets, it's not like I leave the cubicle door open!

    I don't mind either, although it's not always that easy iykwim. I went to the toilet a few months back and a poor woman was there without help whilst caring for two disabled women - both women had to have the door wide open so she could see that they were okay. I saw everything as I walked past. I'd imagine it would be awfully embarrassing for those poor women if a bunch of older boys walked in. Little boys couldn't care less lol.

    In the city they NEVER go alone! I wouldn't dream of letting them until highschool age! If they are funny about going into the ladies I also let them use a disabled toilet and stand outside the door.

    At our local footy/ cricket club during season I let them use the toilets in the change rooms by themselves as it is only players from our hometown in those toilets - they are the only toilets bar school toilets they are allowed to use alone

    My DH once let my eldest use the toilet alone in a pub - I came down on him so hard let's just say it has never been an issue again!!!

    my ds is 8 and i sometimes let him go to the mens...it is a case by case basis.

    I do try and stick to parent rooms or disabled toilets...but, if they are not available and i consider it safe, then i will let him.

    he HATES going into the ladies toilets now so it is a fight.

    Ill probably just play it day by day. He is four and he still goes in the women's toilets.
    I do think there comes a point though.. I remember getting changed once at the pools and a boy of about 12 was in there and he stared at me getting changed so I moved to the toilets and after i was dressed I went and told management. That's just too old.
