It’s usual for moms to protect their children. But sometimes, the way some parents choose to protect their children can raise eyebrows from other parents. Although parents simply want the best for their children, some actions can come across as being overprotective.
Parents have the prerogative of the parent to protect their child however they want as long as it won’t hurt them in the process.
But some approaches might not only come off as finicky but also as something that doesn’t make sense at all. This works for a mother who only allowed her son to go to the ladies’ restroom and never inside the gentlemen’s restroom, especially on his own.
In January 2023, a mom opened up about her concern on Mumsnet — a website made by parents for parents — particularly to ask whether she was being unreasonable in her decision to not allow her 7-year-old son to go to the gentlemen’s restroom.
This mom claimed that she would still bring her son to the ladies’ restroom each time they went outside together.
“When we’re out and my boy needs the toilet, I make him come into the ladies’ with me,” the mom said.
