Kids and public bathrooms

8:55 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
At what age did you let your kids go into public bathrooms by themselves? Was it different for boys vs. girls? What about the grocery store vs. a concert? For dads with daughters- how do you deal with potty breaks?

When you figure this out, let me know. We have the same issues. My 5 1/2 year old daughter will not go without me. Her twin brother will, but he has autism and we worry. So far with my daughter, I have been inching myself away. I stand just inside the door, not in the stall. Next I will stand in the partially open doorway...etc. With my son, its all about independence. He has to do it and if he is ready now, we have to support him. But, I am NOT afraid to storm into a mens bathroom when he is taking too long.
