I was at WalMart yesterday and as I was coming out of the women's bathroom, I noticed a mother and her son was in the bathroom and going into a stall. This young boy looked to be about 12 years old. He was about 5 feet tall. He was almost as tall as I was. He didn't appear to be sick or having any medical problems. He was following his mom to one of the bathroom stalls. I'm assuming it was a mother and son. Anyway, I was caught off guard when I say this young boy in the women's bathroom. I do know that mother's will bring their young sons in to the bathroom for obvious reasons at a young age and I totally understand that and I don't have a problem with that. Without knowing if there was a problem with this young boy or his mother, I really don't know why he was in the women's bathroom. It could have been a medical reason. Perhaps he needed a shot for medical reasons. I just really don't know. Perhaps it was for safety reasons. I have a lot of young nephews and if we were to be travel somewhere to an unfamiliar city, I would be cautious about them being left alone outside the bathroom as they wait on me to come out of the women's bathroom. For safety and security reasons, bringing young boys in the bathroom with their mother is acceptable. My question is, when is a young boy too old to go into the the womens' bathroom with his mother (if it's not an emergency or sickness or illness)? Should there be unisex bathrooms where mothers and/or fathers bring their children in to take care of their needs? What do you think?
