Assuming this is not some sort of differently-abled 14 year old...that's, well, GROSS.. I'm sorry , but at 14...that's too old. personally, if a 14 year old boy came into the women's room, I'd be protesting right and left. That would have to be horrible for the child, ...frankly, I'd consider that twisted, on the mom's part, to the point of emotional abuse....
And in terms of the rights of the other ladies using the LADIES room, I think it is also wrong.
6-8, sure, thats a greay area...but 14? That is a TEENAGED BOY...he does not need to be in a ladies room for any reason(outside of some crazy emergency or something).
