Boys standing up potty training
MOST HELPFUL POSTS

What a topic you moms are discussing about, "boys stand or sit to pee"! So let me tell you some thing then, not bad if you know that in my culture the male people avoid pissing while standing! In my country it's so, as my religion has recommended not to pee while standing, and to do it while sitting or squatting. I know there, they teach the kid when he can stand up, how to pee while standing, but it's not so here. However, I am male and quite healthy, but I don't pee while standing. You should consider that there are many different ways and theologies around the world.
To my own, peeing while standing is a nasty actions, also it does not feet a man's character, that's like you imagine a respectable man standing up still some where, his penis is out and his piss line in front of him! Who made the rule that males MUST stand up while urinating? And don't relate it to the nature, potentially many things are natural as an ability; one can bring it out (gun), aim and kill, but he has choosing power, although he has the ability, but he may not do it if he is sane; one can just bring it out, aim and piss, but does it mean he can not do it in a way but that?
Why stand to pee? Why aim? Aiming is for the time when you are distant to your target and can't be close to it, but when you can be close to it, and if you are sane, you prefer being close to your target than aiming to the target. So sit down and be relax, the name of the place you are doing that in, is rest room! And why you waste your time and energy in cleaning bathrooms? You can save it for more useful affairs by reducing the need of bathroom to be cleaned!
As for those who say "peeing while standing is of a few pleasures of a man!", I should say that a man is more valuable than way of peeing places as his pleasure and property! It does not fit a man to consider that as his worth! Men have more valuable special abilities to be mentioned! And as for those who say "peeing while standing is much easier than doing it while sitting or squatting", I should say that bending over and pulling down pants, and keeping a part of panties down for a while and aim for a while both need an attempt; and the fact that which one is easier for a person depends on habit. The way in which one's habit is based on, is easier for that one, and to which you habit, it will be easier for you! As God has made the ability of peeing while standing easily in guys, it must have an advantage, and yes it has. In men's jobs some times urgent situations happen, and some times they have to do some thing in a short time when the speed is important, and some times men have situations that they can't sit or squat or are in places where sitting or squatting is not easily possible; in such times they can use their ability of peeing while standing easily. But these urgent times just some times happen, not always! So I think there should be a project for men to stop, or to say better, manage peeing while standing. One group are already doing that and their site is: http://www.mapsu.org . As I mentioned, there are some occations when it's needed to pee standing up, then it happens for both men and women! So what should women do? So easy, they can instantly pee standing up using a small device, one is here: http://www.travelmateinfo.com/page002.ht... .
However, it will be great if the current way of peeing of guys in toilets and bathrooms, in the most parts of the world changes.

Dont force him, if he wants to stand up or sit down its up to him really. My little boys is 2 and half and has been potty trained for about 6 months. He sometimes stands up to wee because his daddy does it but i would just leave him to it, he will do it in his own time :)
i have a daughter but iwork at a day care in thepotty training age class yippy lol... we have the boys stand usually i think it works best to potty train them that way but having them put their arms out and lean forwad holding onto the top of the toilet worked best that way they are leaning over the bowl its hard to get them to understand they need to hold their penis down so this seemed to work that way its directly shot into the toilet!! :)

Mine only pees on his own standing up when he is in the tub. I need help getting him to do it on the potty. He sits on the potty but will never pee in it, even when he tells me he has to go! But he'll stand up in the tub and say, "mommy look I pee", go figure.....

I started potty training my March 08 son sitting down and then one day he decided on his own that he wanted to pee standing up. Ocassionally, my son will follow his father into the bathroom, stand next to him, and try to match his daddy (he hasn't made it yet but then again he is only 2)....

Good for you to have him potty trained, My son will try to go on the potty. My 5 year old i got him to sit for the longest time, to me it's much cleaner, no pee over the seat. When he's at school or shopping he stands. I make sure he wipes up his drips.
