my son is 7 yrs old. i still bring him in the ladies room w/ me. he will only go into the mens room when my husband is w/ us to go w/ him. i think it totally depends on the child and the area, but i would say once they hit 10 yrs old, its getting a little old.

Well I bring my boy in w/me & he's 10yrs old.

He doesn't see anything & he doesn't go in the stall w/me & it's not like he's seeing any naked women!

Why do I bring him in there? Well I most certainly am leaving a 10yr old boy alone where he can be taken by someone! I won't leave him at Walmart outside the door, or Kmart or Target.

I don't care who doesn't like it, I'm keeping my child safe.  Oh & my son understands why!

Nowadays, I don't think that's to old to be in the ladies room. My son will be 7 in July and I still make him go in with me, he hates it but I'd rather him hate it then not have him.

I don't think that's too old, especially if you're not sure that establishment would be safe to let him go into the men's room alone. I think you can bring a boy into the ladies' room for long past the point where it would be okay to take a girl into the men's room because the ladies use stalls and are therefore hidden away so there's nothing to see there.

If a mother doesn't feel comfortable with her child going in with out her...then he should go into the ladies room.

I honestly don't understand why some women get weird about it. But I do get dirty looks with my 6yo (he looks about 10), but who cares.

 Red is 6 years old, and I bring him in with me all of the time. I try to find the family bathrooms. I'm sure he'll be 10 and still coming in with me. He's Autistic. Also, you can't be too careful!
