Single parents use them when they are out shopping with young children of the opposite sex and the children are too old to be taken into the restroom of the opposite gender. Often, these parents are uncomfortable with letting them use the restroom alone. Families with several young children also tend to use them to take care of everyone’s needs at the same time.
