    I have a daughter so this isn't a problem for me but I do wonder, what will my husband do when he's out with DD and she needs the loo? (She's still in nappies so I've never thought about this!).

    When I have both we use the disabled or parents room as more often DD is still in the pram so need the space. Having memories of that child that was killed in the disable toilets while their parents were standing close by the door (I think that was it) has made me wary of even letting him do that on his own so for now he gets the same level of company I get every time I go LOL. I'm 36 with an audience, he can have the same till I'm ready to let go.

    I think once they are about 11 or 12 it's old enough to not have them in the women's. That said, who cares? It's not like you all urinate in front of others... You're behind a closed cubicle door so who really cares who is on the other side?

    I understand the fear of locking yourself in a room with someone who may sexually attack you but a boy in the ladies would be in there with his mother or someone anyway so te risk is no longer there.

    My DS is turning 6 and asking to go to the boys. I have on occasion allowed him to use the mens alone - but its a case by case decision. Apart from that we use the disabled or parents room.

    Our local swim school has a sign up saying no boys in the ladies change room after 5. There is no way I am letting DS get changed alone in a room full of strangers! Im just choosing to ignore the sign at the moment.

    People could stare all they want - if I feel the need to take my DS to the loo with me for safety reasons I'll do it. I dare anyone to object to my face

    Thank god I have girls!!! There are too many monsters out there so if it was me I would also get them to use the disabled toilet and I'd be waiting at the door when they finished. Age wise once they could wipe properly I'd b fine.

    I still bring mr 7.5 in the ladies...

    Dont know when ill stop, but i like the idea of them using the disabled...

    When my brother was 16 he went into the mens room at a shopping centre, and a man stuck his head over the stall wall and watched him, my brother yelled at him and his head popped back down, then the man grabbed his leg from under the stall wall violently while groaning. My brother is now 18 and still wont go into a public toilet, and has developed severe anxiety over it.

    My brother was 10. Then he used the disabled toilet until year 12.
