Tips for training boys to Pee Standing Up!
How to Improve:
Let him watch and learn
Toddlers learn by imitation, and watching you use the bathroom is a natural first step.
Buy the right equipment
Most experts advise buying a child-size potty (Training Pee-Toad), which your toddler can claim for his own and which will also feel more secure, their anxiety can interfere with potty training.
Help your child get comfortable with the potty
Let your child get used to the idea of using the potty. Start by letting him know that the potty is his very own. You can personalize it by writing his name on it or letting him decorate it with stickers. If your child has a favorite doll or stuffed animal, use it for potty demonstrations. Most children enjoy watching their favorite toy go through the motions, and your child may learn more this way than from you telling him what to do.
Teach him to sit first, then stand
Since bowel movements and urine often come at the same time, it makes sense to have your son sit for both poop and pee at first so he learns that both belong in the potty. Also, that way he won't get distracted by the fun of spraying and learning to aim when you need him to concentrate on mastering the basic procedure. Avoid letting him sit too long (15 minutes is sufficient), once your son is comfortable going to the bathroom sitting down, he can try the standing position.
Set aside some naked time
Put the potty in an accessible area while he plays, and encourage him to sit on it at regular intervals.
