Taking kids into the opposite gender restroom
What should a parent do when they are alone with their opposite gender child and that child needs to go to the restroom? Do you take them in the restroom with you? Do you send them into the other restroom by them self?
I have an 8yr old son. Most of the time I will have him go into the womens restroom with me. I always make sure he is behaved and respectful and not playing around in the restroom. Occasionally I will send him into the mens restroom alone if it is empty and we are in a place with very little people.
I don't want to send him in alone because I worry that something bad could happen to him. I don't see anything wrong with him going in the womens restroom with me.
What do you do as a parent? What do you think about what other parents do? If you kids are not old enough yet what do you plan to do?
