how do i get my 9 year old boy to stop peeing on the toliet seat?
We had SS's clean the toilet. The problem solved itself after that! lol
You make him come back and clean it up EVERY single time...
That's the only thing that seems to work around my house. Every couple of months the boys starts getting lazy again, but a dozen times of "get back here and clean this pee!" seems to make him shape up for a while.
I made mine go pee behind the barn.!!
Have him clean the toilet every time he pees on the seat. If that doesn't work he can clean it every time the toilet is used. Teach him how to do it properly (not just wipe it up). Make it more work. Either he'll stop (or clean up after himself) or you'll have someone new to clean the bathroom/toilets in the house.
My boys have always aimed pretty well (except at night, like someone else mentioned). They've been pretty good, until recently, about putting the seat down too. Lately though they've 'forgotten' this action that they've done all of their lives... so, each time I see the seat up, I make them stop and turn off whatever it is they're doing and come put the seat down. I told them both that if it continues, I'll start making them stop what they're doing and CLEAN the bathroom when I see it too. It's worked pretty well for the last week... maybe it'll stick? ;)
I saw a suggestion actually for an adult man. The suggestion is to put a picture of you on the "lid" part of the toilet seat right in the middle of the "seat hole" and tell your son, now when you pee on the seat, you are saying that you dont care if I sit in your pee.
One thing I did only once because it broke him was made him come into the bathroom and sit on the seat with the pee on it. He cried so hard! I calmly said, "Its YOUR pee. You obviously dont care if I sit on it so you shouldnt be upset if you sit on it." Stopped it right then...
keep clorox cleaning wipes in the bathroom and make him wipe the toilet seat down every time he uses it. that is what I had to do with my boys and eventually they got the point.
me him clean it, and the floor
Simple.... take the toilet seat OFF.
