There's an outdoor pool at our apartment complex which has a mens and womens shower/dressing cabin as you enter. There are no restrooms in them, but there is a portable toilet outside closer to the playground. Last year I noticed the boys running into the shower cabin frequently, but assumed they were just warming up in the shower. I later came to realize they were running in there to pee! Now I'll confess that like most women, I'll pee in the shower at home, but I was a bit uneasy about them doing it in a group public shower, as I assumed someone would say something about it.
I brought up the subject with a couple other moms whom have boys down there saying, "I've heard that some of the boys are peeing in the showers," and was quite surprised to hear that not only did they openly admit that their boys do so, but they don't see a problem with it. The mom of my sons best freind has an older boy in High School and she commented, "oh, eventually they're gonna pick it up when they get to middle school anyway, I understand that nearly all of them pee in the showers after gym."
A friend of ours is a football coach and I very delicately brought up the subject with him. "I friend told me that some boys pee in the showers at school," I asked, "what would happen to them if they were to get caught?"
I was again very surprised to hear him say, "well they don't have much time to change, much less run to the restroom, so I imagine that most of the boys do it in the showers, there's no harm in it."
What's your thoughts, do your boys do so? Does it concern you at all?
