  • he started peeing sitting down and watched daddy pee and wanted to be a big boy like daddy so he did it on his own - I teach him to aim by telling him to hit the hole..lol!

  • I have 3 year old twin boys. They started at 2 years old. I didn't teach them, they just saw their dad one day and decided to start doing it. They are now fully potty trained and I am one happy momma. If you need help, ask your DH, DF, DB or a male in your family, He will get the hang of it. Just teach him to stand as close to the bowl as he can, and shake his penis twice when he is finished so he wont drip. And of course to wash his hands after!!

  • My son is 4-1/2 and fully potty trained, but still sits down to pee. He went through a phase during training when he would stand up, but doesn't anymore. I figure he'll stand when we wants to.

  • throw some cherrios or fruit loops in the bowl so he has somthing to aim at. Make a game of it. Dont forget to have him put the seat back down when he is done!
