While HE cleans it up. Unless you or someone else is occupying the ONLY bathroom in the house 24/7, he should be more than old enough to express that he needs to use the commode.

Since he's getting a lot of attention from you when he does this, you need to STOP making it a big deal. Hand him the cleaning items, supervise him cleaning up his mess, and continue to enforce that.

Oh. You then mention (later) that the child is autistic. That means that he doesn't process information as others do. You need to relate to him on his level, and retrain him to use the commode, rather than letting loose 'wherever'. Part of the problem may be that you have already encouraged him to pee in a bottle before...indicating that he doesn't need the commode.

If he's getting attention from you when he pees thoughout the house, that might be the reason. Don't scold him or pay much attention to him at all. Say something like "next time, please use the toilet", and ignore him while you clean it up.

If he doesn't seem to be seeking attention, or if you feel it's related to his autism, then you probably should speak to a doctor. If he doesn't realize he has to pee until it's an immediate need, then the doctor might be able to give you information on how to solve that issue.

Ok, well, that kind of information would be more helpful in your post. You can't assume we know that. I just guessed he might be.
I don't have experience with autistic children in relation to toileting habits, so I can't help, but now that you have given more info, maybe someone may be able to.

Does he have some kind of disability? You probably should discuss this with a doctor.
