How old was your son when he started using the MENS ROOM?

I've seen moms coming the the ladies room with their sons. I was wondering.....if there is an age limit???

  • If it was a crowded place where I did not feel safe allowing my son into the men's room alone i would take him into the woman's room up until last year. He is 13 now and I feel ok sending him in alone everywhere. I take my 2 little ones, ages 8 and 6, into the women's room unless my husband is around to take them to the men's.

  • In a place that has family rest rooms we use those. I wish more places did. At crowded places he comes with me. At not so crowded places he goes by himself and I wait outside the door. He knows to scream if anyone comes near him He is 6.

  • He was about 7, I'd wait right outside the door until he came out. My ex, myself, and my DH all talked to him about appropriate bathroom etiquette first.

  • my boys are 5 and 6, and they go in the bathroom together. they just get a lecture about no playing, no loud voices, just pea, wash hands and leave.
    i was sooo nervous the first time i let my son go to the bathroom his self. i couldn't go with him, i was in line at the grocery store with twins and the 3 yr old. i could see the bathroom door while i was in line, but i was very nervous. i would have felt better if i was right outside the door, and not in line!
    imo, 5 and 6 is too old for my boys to go into the women's bathroom.
    probably 5 might be the cut off for most boys. but of course, some are special, and some may not be able to even open the doors on their own...they are heavy.
