do you encourage your son to use toilet paper to wipe off when he pees or do you just let him 'shake it' clean?

  • I didn't know guys used toilet paper when they peed. The males in our house have always used the shake method.

  • lol--this is cute:-) Mine would just shake BUT if they made a mess--they went back in and cleaned it off----I rarely had a messy toilet. They learned very young it is easier to be neat or wipe it off quick then to come back in the house to wipe it off:-)

  • DH taught them how to stand and pee. No mater if they use TP to wipe afterwards I still clean the bathroom 3-4 times a week. Almost everyday of the week. I'm the only female in the house and sometimes I go to sit on the pot and have a wet seat to sit on. Trust me I wish I had my own bathroom.

  • In the beginning I made my son wipe with toilet paper, but as he got preschool age and they used urinals there, then he learned to just use the shake method.

  • I did have my son blot his pee off so he didn't become irritated or get a rash. But he does know how to shake it off.
