If it's the kind in the photo, you can drape a bit of toilet paper over the sensor until your girls are done - that will stop it from flushing. Some people carry sticky notes in their purses to put over the sensors.

I personally think these sensors waste a lot of water, and should be banned.

I would like to second the post-it-note idea. I read many places this was the thing to try if the automatic flushers were a problem when using public potties with small children. After a week on vacation, I used the smallest size post-it-notes and they worked perfectly. Just place one over the small square sensor and the toilet will not flush until you remove the post-it or push the tiny button above the sensor to activate the flushing mechanism. Good luck!

My children are afraid of them. When they ask to use the bathroom, the first thing they do is look at the flusher. If it's an automatic, they will choose not to go. I have to talk them into it so that we can avoid an accident.

I love the sticky-note idea! That's necessity as the mother of invention! or maybe it's that motherhood necessitates invention :) or at least some good creative solutions, right?

I drape toilet paper over them. I'm a germaphobe and I try to wait until I'm nearly exiting the stall to flush so I tend to drape toilet paper over it so I can decide when it flushes. :)
