When do you let your little boys go to the mens' room alone?

Matthew is four and I do not, he always comes with me or his Dad. At this point he doesn't seem to care either. Some of my friends let their kids of the same age go into the mens' room alone, but I am just not ready! I am honestly not all that worried about perverts...I feel like I could monitor him pretty well from the hall. I just don't think he is big enough - he can't always reach the sink, he isn't a good judge of what is dirty and what is not, etc.

I agree. Shane is five and I still don't let him go in alone. He uses the ladies room. Andrew is seven and I do let him go in alone as long as I stand outside the door.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

At about 7-8 I think is when I started letting them go alone. I stood outside the door too.

I've just started letting Cole (6) go in by himself. He was getting really embarrassed when I would take him in with me.

RJ is 3.5, but he doesn't use the potty at all He would need help anyway. Sydney is 5.5 and I let her go in by herself, well with Jayde, if we are out so that I don't have to bring EVERYONE in. I don't let them run all the way across the store or anything. I think they would get lost.

Sebastian is seven and started insisting he go alone a few months back. I stand outside the door the whole time.

Elzie is almost 6 (next month) and has been going alone for several months now. He is a big almost 6 though...he's as big as my almost 8 year old
Momma to Emma, Elzie, Gretchen, Olive, and Rogan

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
