  • Try having him sit backwards on the big potty. He will soon be standing facing it .

  • have him drink water while hes on the potty and maybe that will help.

  • Don't Laugh Walmart carries Urinals for little boys that age. Maybe you should get him one. My son is 2 and he uses one and he loves it. Its not that exspensive either. We had this problem until we went and bought him a urinal. Its in the potty training section with potty training seats.

  • This is normal for boys and girls to do. He'll catch on very soon. I'd say just be patient. When he jumps up and puddles, just so "Oh dear. It looks like you weren't quite done. I'm sure you'll get more peepee in the potty next time you try." Have him help clean up the puddle and move on.

  • try teaching him to stand and pee my son is 2 yrs old and will stand at the potty and hold his own pee pee but wont go. also why teach him to pee twice (once sitting down and then standing up) simply nip it in the bud and get a jump on it teach him to pee standing up its natrual for boys..good luck also i agree with anon get the "peter potty" its urinal for lil boys heres the link
