The other day I witnessed something a little weird...

In a women's restroom on campus, a woman had brought her young child in with her. I assumed her little one was perhaps two or three. But then they came out of the tiny stall. A rambunctious boy about five or six years old burst out. The two of them had both fit into a single stall! 

So excited was he to get out, the boy ran around the entire restroom, meeting all sorts of women. From every angle. He was so liberated & curious, that at one point he crawled into another stall, which was occupied by a poor (and  embarrassed) college girl! Needless to say, most everyone was horrified. 

I'm not opposed to bringing young kids into the restroom with you. If your boy is two or three, I don't expect you to leave him wandering in a mass of unknown people. But where do we draw the line? I can honestly say I've never seen a dad bring his little daughter into the men's room. No matter how old. So how is it okay that women bring their more the toddler sons into our place of privacy?

At some point, your little guy needs to be able to go to the bathroom on his own. 

Sometimes the women's room isn't even that.
