I've also seen them post a lookout at the door to make sure no men enter while they are there.
I will never understand why, the womens bathrooms seem to have the least amount of toilets...TDBIASWS.

I will send him in to go to the bathroom in the men's room and wait by the door. Heck, he just turned 5 and yells when I try to take him in the girls room that he is not a girl. Once he is able to wipe his butt himself, I plan on letting him use the correct gender bathrooms.

I'm speaking as the mother of an adolescent girl, who is in a far different place in life that I am. She deserves a resonable amount of privacy as she deals with hygeine issues. You know. In the "women's" restroom.

But you are the one assuming she cares. She may not. Nobody knows!

Still making assumptions?

How can you possibly know whether we have had this discussion?

As someone who is presumably closer in life to being a teenaged girl, I'll admit. I Care! There are gaps in the doorway. When I was a teen hygiene in a public bathroom period was hard, much less if a 9yo boy was there

And also there is a reason colleges have coed bethrooms and not high schools. There's a world of difference when you're 15 and when you're 18 at college

And just imagine middle school, when girls are just coming to terms with all of this.

Are you saying that she doesn't know how her teen daughter feels about changing her feminine hygiene items in a public bathroom? I know how my teen daughter feels about it.

She's talking about her daughter! I'm pretty sure she knows!

Mom2rtk - I'm with you on this one. I'm 25 and it still makes me uncomfortable to see boys in the women's bathroom who are almost as tall as me.

If I see an adult man or male teen in the women's restroom, I'm calling someone. Unless he's disabled in some way, he doesn't belong there!

That aside, I see nothing wrong with leaving a 12 year old alone briefly. It depends on child of course but I would imagine that most kids that age are fine.

In the bathroom I could care less about a boy being in there as far my own privacy goes. It doesn't make me uncomfortable for a preteen boy to be in the bathroom. The reason I don't like it is because I can't stand overprotective parents, it's my biggest pet peeve in life! Every time I see or hear overprotective parents it makes my skin crawl! I think they are ridiculous. And I have every right to find them irritating just as anyone has a right to have a personal pet peeve about anything. So when you drag your 10 year old in the ladies room I won't be uncomfortable but I will think YOU are stupid and roll my eyes!

Thank you!

I do find it comical that a stranger on an internet forum thinks they know more about this than I do. I also find it odd that another poster says the young girl should get over it, yet will not tell the insecure mom dragging her 9/10 yo boy into the women's room to get over it.

Peter Fan, are you at least female?
