The kids and I often go to family swim times at the rec center on campus on the weekends. DS is 6, and is on the tall side for his age. There is no family locker room there so I've always just brought both kids with me in the women's locker room and it's never been a problem. Today we were done swimming and were showering off in the locker room. Another woman came into the locker room. She pointed at my DS and said "is he going to be in here for a while?" And I said yes, we had just started with the shower, and I pointed out that there were 2 other showers available. And she said "this is the women's locker room." And I said my son is only 6 and I'm not comfortable with him in the men's locker room by himself. And she kind of scoffed and then went into a bathroom stall and changed her clothes without showering. It really irritated me. I guess I shouldn't worry about it. Am I being too protective not allowing him in the men's locker room on his own? What else can I do?
