    Maybe they need to have 3 equal sized toileting rooms: men, women & family.
    IMO the parent/family facilities are never big enough.
    The shopping centre I go to has 1 ridiculously small parents room with 1 toilet cubicle & some change stations outside. It's always so busy I would change DD in the back of the car! Not looking forward to toilet training!

    It sounds like there was inadequate facilities (all the parents rooms I have seen have had 1x toilet cubicle) & it can get pretty busy in the high traffic ones.

    I consider the toilet in the parents room for a parent with kids or a stroller. I wouldn't leave my stroller to go into a cubicle (too paranoid haha). And some parents are not comfortable taking children into adult toilets.

    That being said, I'd hope for a bit of courtesy from someone with an older child; that they would let someone who was struggling or with a very young child to go first.

    I get more ragey about random people using the parents room toilet without children & making kids/parents wait.

    If I have all three aged 2, 6 and 7 I use the parents room even if it's for the bolero two as I don't like hanging around in the toilets with yhe kids waiting for whoever is going. If it's just the older two I'll use tje normal ones.

    This is me. Once out of nappies never used a parents room again.

    But I regularly use disabled if I have more than 2 kids with me.

    unless my older child was absolutely busting/struggling themselves then yes I absolutely would have let others go first if more in need

    So that the parents of said baby or toddler and their other older children can use the toilet? Not just a mum with a 10 year old and no baby or toddler to change!

    So as a mum of a 4yo boy, I'm not supposed to bring him into change rooms or ladies toilets with me, not supposed to use the parents room because he's not in nappies and not supposed to use disabled toilets... so my 4yo should use the mens room alone?

    Default Parent Room Rage

    my daughter is 3 almost 4 we don't use the parent room we don't need it and when she needs to go she needs to go. and some rooms don't have much space and out of consideration of new mums breast feeding I just don't feel like we need the parent room anymore.
    I struggle with my 7 yr old boy because he goes into the men's alone and I get frightened.
    it's sad that the world is like this but I need to be vigilant.

    edit I should mention my son refuses to go into the ladies.
    sounds like I need to sent him into the disabled next time
