  • My son didn't really start to use the toilet until I'd put him into a daycare that was mostly boys. When he was able to observe other boys his age using the toilet standing up he started to figure it out on his own. I'd say let him observe another male and how it's done.

  • my son watches daddy and now wants to stand up instead of sitting down. But it's still hard for him to even sit down/!

  • Cheerios! Put one or two in the toilet and tell him to aim for them! This is how we got potty training boys in daycare to use the toilet.
