Sumary of My American kids got a new perspective on modesty when we moved to the Netherlands. They adapted to open-air urinals and unisex locker rooms.:
- My kids didn’t flinch, but it took some time for me to get used to a more open, practical society.
- It was a grey plastic contraption divided into four stalls, and you might walk by without knowing what it was unless someone happened to be using it.
- The teachers didn’t waste time by going to private rooms, dividing by gender to change, and then heading to the gym, it was more like “pop on some shorts and a tee-shirt and let’s go.
- ” Their classmates and teachers didn’t make a big deal about it, so my boys never thought to either.
- The locker rooms and even the showers at my kids’ Dutch swimming lessons were combined, boys and girls.
