I have my boys (3) lift up the seat, and if they happen to dribble I make them clean it up... my husband on the other hand still gets it all over the place; which never ceases to amaze, you would think that a grown man could aim in a giant hole, but no such luck in this house

buy a bight coloured ping pong ball and put it in the toilet bowl and tell all the kids/husbands to"aim" for it. My aunty did this with her 2 boys and hasnt had a problem with wee all over the place. the good thing about the ping pong ball is that it wont be flushed away as it floats in the bowl

try putting a ping pong ball in the toilet. it wont flush away and it gives them something to aim at.

One night I stumbled into the bathroom and when I stood up I had sat in a lot of pee. No one would own up. I have two boys and a husband. Good luck with it! If you discover a great trick PLEASE let me know.

Boys and Men just don't pay attention to what they are doing. You would think it would be simple enough for them to aim. Apparently not, since my almost 14 year old still does not aim into the toliet! I just keep clorox wipes handy in each bathroom.

I have my sons (complete opposite) twins, my brother, and my father all in one house. There always seems to be pee on or around the toilet. I think I'm going to try something new...
Rather than asking them to put the toilet seat up when they go, I'm going to leave it up and put it down when I have to go. I think that's the only way I can ensure a clean seat. And if they go #2 and fall in because the toilet seat is up, thats their own problem!

there are 4 boys of mine and trust me pee on the seat is always a problem. By the second potty training I got smart. you know those toilet covers they have in some up license restrooms? well I hot some for the house and placed one on the toilet and a pack in a kid friendly reachable spot in the bathrooms. I told them don't wait till you really have to go. when you do go stop. grab one of these toilet covers place it on the toilet and go. of you see dark spots it's because you got pee on the cover and on the seat. tear it off and flush it. then clean up and check around the toilet and on the other side. when they didn't do this they owed half of their allowance or treats to the potty jar or toilet box. jar for money box for treats or gifts. how do you take half a gift? you don't let them have it for 1 week. if your kids don't get allowance they you tell them if they don't they get a spanking of you don't spank then time outs or how ever you punish them. my biggest rule for both my and the kids: DONT WAVER. if you don't carry out the punishment they won't take you seriously.

Hi everyone! So I am not really a mom, but I am an older sister and I'm 23 years old. I am 100000000% tierd of sitting in my 18 year ok brother and his dumb friends pee! For some dumb reason they cannot lift the seat at all or they completley miss the bowl all together! I have sat in pee do many times I'm at my last resort. I am going to resort to pay back. I was told to place ceran wrap coving the whole and it will leave a mess for them as well as a taste of their own medicine. It's sounding like its worth the clean up! Good luck!!!!!

I don't get upset with my son if he pees on the toilet rim (unless of course he is doing it on purpose, messing around) we just have a ritual that when he is done peeing he takes a piece of toilet tissue and wipes the end of his penis and then the rim of the toilet where it dripped. It works out nicely!

my two BOYS ages 9 and 50 (yes, I said 50!! my hubby) still can not hit the toilet,
no matter how much I gripe!!!!! IT'S JUST NOT FAIR!!!!!

My 11 year old does it all the time. I almost want to have him sit on it, so he can see what it feels like for me. It makes me so mad. Since I started telling him about it he will now just put the seat down. ( So I think it should be safe, but isn't) LOL, Boys and Men will always be toilet pigs.

I have 4 and I am still working on it. I heard the Cheerios trick works well too.
