At what age is it appropriate to allow your child to go into the stall of a public restroom by themselves? I'm talking about them locking the door with you on the outside...
My daughter is 4 and has just started wanting to do this. I've been allowing it, but it makes me so nervous...

Why would it make you nervous?
My youngest daughter has been using a stall on her own since she figured out how to get on the seat without falling in so at about 3 1/2. We don't worry about germs and she washes her hands after she uses the toilet. Half the time I don't even go into the bathroom. Her older sisters take her (they are 8 and 10). And a couple weeks ago we were out to eat and me and my husband had just sat down to eat (the kids food came earlier) and she had to go so my 9yo son took her over to the bathrooms but she refused to go into the boys room so he opened the girls room door and waited outside for her to be done. I thought that was really cute.
