I'm the mom of a girl, too, but I still think it's nasty. I would not allow my son to relieve himself in public...that's so...TRAILER PARK! :)

I do have a friend who had two boys, and they got into the very bad habit of urinating out of doors. She's still trying to get them to stop it, and they're now 13. So, don't let them *start*, because it's a hard habit to break. Not to mention disgusting.

KLee, thanks for reassuring me that I wasn't being overly sensitive! I understand that there are emergencies that need to be dealt with from time to time. But mostly I just *shudder*.

Ah yes, well, ahem. I'm of mixed feelings on this one. While I'd be thoroughly disgusted to see a child over the age of six or seven doing this, I have to admit that we've been overtaken by the capacity of Tristan's bladder when we've been far from any public facilities. I tried to be as discreet as possible and have him go in the tall weeds at the edge of the playgroud, though, far from prying eyes and footpaths.

Sometimes, ya just gotta go...

Hi Dani! I understand and am sympathetic about emergencies!

Perhaps it's the parent's attitudes (or lack thereof) that rubbed me the wrong way. If they had shown any signs of trying to be discreet I think it would be easier for me to accept.

I understand little ones have emergencies, and honestly, if I had a boy I'd be skittish about sending him into a public restroom.

But still. Ew? It's one thing to go discreetly in the bushes, but letting them whiz on the playground where other kids are gonna step in it is naaaaasy.

Hi Loops O'Fury and welcome!
