I am an auntie travelling alone with her 8-year old nephew. I am concerned about him going to a toilet on his own. Will be be allowed in with me to a Ladies toilet? Sorry it's a silly question but I feel I am twice responsible as he is not my own son. Tks!

Hi Laura! That sounds like so much fun bringing your nephew! What a lucky boy!
Yes! He can go into the bathroom with you. I actually face the same problem when I travel without my husband, but with my two sons. They are 8 and 11 and they STILL go into the restrooms with me! No one even gives it a second glance. I totally agree with you that it is better to be safe than sorry! My youngest one gets distracted easily, and I could see him wandering off while waiting for me to come out of the women's room.
Rest assured that it will be OK, and it is not a silly question at all!
Have a magical trip!!!
