Young Boys Going into Public Bathrooms Alone...
Hi all -
I have an 11 yr old son. When we go out to the mall or someplace, if he has to use the bathroom, I used to take him into the ladies room with me when he was younger. But now that he's 11 yrs old, I feel like that isn't appropriate.
But I'm so worried about sending him into a men's room alone. I do it but I stand right there next to the door and wait for him.
It's so much easier when his dad is with us, then they both go in. But there are so many times that his dad isn't along and he has to go it alone.
I had a friend who's daughter (age 7) went into the bowling alley bathroom and was assaulted by a man who was in there so that really freaked me out and now I have this huge concern about letting my son be alone in a bathroom.
Does anyone else worry about things like this?
