- Can open, worms everywhere
Following on from the gym topic, WRT ‘mixed’ changing.
I sometimes see fathers taking young daughters into the gents to use the facilities. Presumably mothers take boys into the ladies too. Where do we stand on this?
In the absence of dedicated parent & child facilities, I think I’d be more comfortable with a mother taking a young son in the gents, rather than me having to use a urinal with small girls wandering curiously about. Seems more appropriate from a toilet-training perspective too.

What do other readers think?
I think when I used to take my daughter out on my own I’d rather have taken her in the gents with me than me go in the ladies with her.
she did try and wash her hands in a urinal the first time I took her in a gents after she could walk.
If we were out as a family then I took boy in gents and wife took daughter in ladies.
Once she was able to sort herself out (6 or 7 – old enough to be ‘trusted’ anyway) I let her go in the ladies on her own and waited outside.Posted 6 years agojoao3v16Member
It’s a system that’s worked perfectly well since the beginning of time. Or at least since public conveniences were invented.
Only a berk would complain about a parent taking their 3-year-old into the loo’s.
There’s absolutely no need for special parent/child-specific facilities.Posted 6 years agoSurrounded By ZulusMember
My son likes to run into the ladies and have a dump before deciding that he cant wipe his own arse. Only does it when I’m the only one there though.
I am saddened that there i nothing special about woman’s toilets. Does make me wonder why they feel the need to go there in pairs though.Posted 6 years agosaleemMember

My mate took my eldest son to the loo when we were at a restaurant years ago, only to return shouting as he got to the table that my mate hadn’t washed his hands, everyone looked towards him, red faced and full of denial, kids always tell it the way they see it.
Aways makes me laugh the way they shout at the top of their voices to you when you’re stood on the other side of the door.aracerSubscriber
Oh if you want a real can, I shall have one in a few weeks time when my son’s swimming changes to half an hour later. Then I’ll be returning to the changing rooms with him whilst the following school group is using them (from previous experience they’re always running late). The thing is, the boys use the male changing room, the school feels they need adult supervision, and they don’t have any male teachers…Posted 6 years agojoemarshallMember
Swimming pool changing rooms are the same, just take them in the changing room based on the gender of the parent. Simple.
Sometimes the guys at ours moan a bit about older kids (5 or 6 yr olds, there’s an age limit which is 8 I think) pointing at people’s willies and laughing, but frankly if you’re worried about anyone looking at your cock, you could always use the cubicles provided and shower with swimming stuff on (at ours in the gents changing they have cubicles and an open central bit with benches, but most people use the central bit and just change out there).
In quite a few more modern swimming pools than ours, I’ve noticed that they just have a single large number of cubicles, which seems fine, although removes the social changing room banter thing that a lot of the older serious swimmer types seem to get up to.
The baby change in the ladies thing is dead annoying. If there’s no baby change at all, the ladies is sometimes better anyway, because there’s less likely to be piss on the floor of the cubicles / exciting looking urinals to poke curious hands in.Posted 6 years ago
You can tell you’ve not got kids. Once you do, any distinction between male and female toilet facilities you previously held, soon evaporates.
You say that, but it doesn’t; if it did, you’d see men with daughters and women with sons equally.
the OP seems to have an issue with it, though.
I don’t have an issue with it at all. I just thought it might be an interesting talking point. I’d be quite happy with unisex bathrooms.Posted 6 years ago
