When my daughter was 6 years of age, I allowed her to go into the female washroom in a fast food outlet by herself but I was worried that an offender could have been in there. Should you allow your childern to go into Washrooms at Restaurants or Public Washrooms by themselves?

Nowadays crime rate is increasing , so it is better to escort your children to go into washrooms, why take the risk.

I'll tell you a scary story. My friends has a nephew who is 8 years old. His mother waited outside a public restroom while he went in, as the door open she saw a guy grab her son and yell "drink this", she busted the door open and grabbed her son. The man ran outside to a van with another man inside. She got the license plate but they still haven't found him! So of course I'll be careful when my son uses a public restroom, he's still in diapers though!

With all the bad stories on the news I don't like to let my kids out of my site anywhere! My daughter will be 6 soon and I would not let her go to the bathroom by herself, not for a long time! I just want to keep my babies safe and if that neads I have to go to the bathroom with them than I will do it!

no i wouldn't let my child if they needed to go, id go with them or we would have to wait if it was busy or something like that, just incase something bad happened without me being there, we can never be safe no matter where we go!

I guess everybody has different feelings about it but mine would be not to let my child go in alone. My daughter is 8 and I still don't let her go in alone. I am also afraid of that. I think after 10 maybe but I'll still be afraid I'm sure.
