We have a potty chair and a ring for the toilet, but he wants to use the regular toilet without a ring because his twin sister has decided she is too big to use those baby things anymore. She's practically trained and doing well, so I can't force her to use the training aids again. He's thinner than she is, and unfortunately he's fallen in the toilet a few times. Now he's a little scared to scoot back far enough to actually pee IN the toilet. I've tried getting him to face the back, but he isn't thrilled about that either. My husband thinks maybe we should try having him stand up, but since he's only beginning to train I don't think that is a great idea. I don't want to turn potty training into a battle, but what we're doing now isn't working. I need some ideas!
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting him in a poition where he will pee IN the toilet rather than on the seat and in the floor?

There is the Peter Potty, the flushing toilet training urinal. It looks fun and it is only $40.

He cries when I pick up the ring now, so I don't think he'll be cooperative if I try to force it; he's really just beginning to show interest and I don't want to turn this into a battle. He's a sensitive little guy, and he wants very badly to do everything his sister does. We went through tears with him when she learned to crawl first, and again when she learned to walk first, and now she's potty training first.
We do have a step stool, so maybe I'll get Daddy to help him try it standing up; maybe doing it in a special boys only way will make him feel special.
If that fails I might consider the Peter Potty; if it were just him I'd order it in a heartbeat, but I suspect his twin sister will think she needs to try it too and I don't think that would go too well!
Thanks for the ideas!
