What are some good suggestions to potty training boys? He likes to pee all over except in the potty?

My son likes to just go to his bedroom shut the door and pee on the floor, he pees on the furniture, off our balcony anywhere but the toilet and he shows no interest in going poop on the potty but after he does poop he comes out and says mommy I pooped.

try when he goes in the toilet give him a penny for pee 2 pennies when he poops and after like 5 pennies he gets a car. it helps teach him to count to 5 as well as potty training. it was the only way we got my nephew potty trained

try a ping pong ball or something in the toilet/potty for him to aim at. we have a ping pong ball in the toilet for our son, its great he thinks its a game to hit the ball and best of all it doesnt flush so you dont have to try and get it out everytime someone needs to use the toilet.

Take it slow and be very relaxed about the whole thing!

I let my wee boy run about naked from waist down to begin with - kept talking about the potty and I even took him to pick his own pants! That really helped because he wouldn't wear pants before that!
Also let him see you put your underwear on and use the toilet!
Don't be hung up on him doing accidents - it's all part of potty training and you have to expect!
If your son is ready it shouldn't take long to potty train him!
My son was ready and in no time was potty trained day and night!

Oh and this is a good sign that he is doing pees out of his nappy - He's getting used to doing it without the nappy on and soon if you keep telling him where it goes then he will start doing them there!

Hope this helps! x
