Lil Community: When Is It Age Appropriate to Use the Men's Room?

Motherhood can be a mind-boggler! LilSugar reader amandachalynn is looking for some advice in The Mommy Club.

My son is turning 5, and is very picky. He has started to insist on using the men's room instead of going into the women's with me. If it is a single toilet, I have no problem with it. I am still uncomfortable with him going into a room with multiple stalls. My husband thinks I'm being ridiculous, and says that even in the off chance of there being one shady character in the men's room, nothing will happen because other men would stop it. He also pointed out that I'll be standing right next to the door and can hear any crying/screaming. What are your opinions on this?
