I'm Not Sure...

Well I'm a single mom and I have been pretty independent since becoming a mom and I'm raising my son on my own.

My question is about bathroom issues. My son is 4 1/2 now and when we go to public restrooms should I take him to the ladies room with me or should I take him to the men's bathroom.

I think he's too young to go by himself and I don't really know what to do.

  • take him in the ladies room with you, hes still too young to be left alone in a mens bathroom there are a ton of pervs out there! if you are in store with a family restroom take him in there if you wish!

  • I know not to leave him unattended in a public restroom.

    At what age should I let him go to the men's restroom on his own?

  • I say 6 or 7 you should be able to let him go alone. He will be old enough to understand stranger danger by then.
