  • make peeing in the toilet fun for him! Perhaps trying target practice. put a coin or something of the same and have him try to pee on it. He will have fun trying and praise him for peeing in the pot!

  • I wish you the best of luck on this. I live with two 26 year old boys and I can't keep them from missing the toilet either.

  • Good luck with that one. My son finally stopped peeing on the floor and he is 13!!! He still gets it all over the lid though. At 4, my son was cleaning the toilet with Clorox wipes. That is still his job to this day and he does an amazing job.
