  • My boys are 8 and 9 and they've decided on their own it's not for them. And I think 8-10 is a good age for that

  • Who cares? Womens restrooms have stalls with doors. There is plenty of privacy. If a mom wants her 12 year old to go with her rather than take a chance of getting molested in the men's room, then I say let them in.

  • Good question... I've never really thought about it. I used to go to American Family Fitness and they won't allow opposite sex children in the locker rooms over 4 yrs old. IDK what they expected me to do w/ my now 6yr old while I changed, etc. I stopped going there b/c there were no "family" type restrooms, etc.

  • I don't think it matters i agree with anon 3:07pm. my son is 6yrs old and i drag him in the restroom with me if my hubby isn't there to take him to the mens. i will not alow him to go in the mens alone. i could never understand why men would want to pee out in the open next to another man. there should be stalls in the mens reastroom
