Would you let your 5 year old in the same bathroom stall as you
Today we went out to do kid friendly stuff in Seattle. There are quite a few homeless people and whackos that hang out in seattle just like any area. The bathrooms were kindof secluded from the events going on and I obviously had to take my son into the bathroom with me 1 so i could see him and 2 because if he waited outside the door I wouldnt be able to hear him because of the way the bathroom was designed. I honestly dont trust people even in a womens bathroom so I brought my son into the stall with me so he cant run off and so no one could attempt to do anything. I dont know if im just paranoid but I was talking to my friend about it today and she thought it was inappropriate for me to allow my 5 year old in the same stall. Not something i would normally do but I felt i had to in that area and she also said "he should of at least faced away". I honestly didnt think of him doing that i was more worried about his safety and having to use the bathroom. Thats really the only thing i cared about. I dont understand why everything has to made into such a big deal by people. Its not like my son hasnt walked in on my using the bathroom before since we dont put a lock on our bathroom or bedroom doors incase our kids get hurt and we need to get to them. Would you have done the same thing or was what I did really wrong?
