Should a 4-year-old be allowed to use a public restroom unsupervised?

For example: Like at a public swimming pool crowded with people.

Depends where you live, your child, and your comfort level. In a crowded place though... I would say 'no' at 4 even if you live in a safe location. I think my son was 4 or 5 the first time he went in a public restroom alone, but we were at a McDonald's and there was NO ONE else around... and I watched the bathroom door the entire time anyway.
