Dear Poll: How Old Is Too Old to Bring Your Son into the Women's Changing Room?

Dear Poll: How Old Is Too Old to Bring Your Son into the Women's Changing Room?

A reader sent in a very good question last week - At what age is it inappropriate to bring your son into the women's changing room with you? Here is her story:

This was the question I had today after my swim. I was butt-naked with just a towel when a woman walks in with her daughter and son, who looked to be about 8. I felt it was inappropriate. Then again, in our day and age, is the mother expected to just let her son in to go alone in the men's rooms? I am not a mother, so I can not realistically put myself in that position.

Since I am not a mother either, I wanted to ask you all what you thought about this topic. At what age do you stop bringing your son into the women's changing room with you? Since little kids know more than we think, when do you start feeling uncomfortable with children of the opposite sex in the same room as you while you're getting dressed?
