When potty training a boy do you have them sit on a potty or stand???

Hi! With my son, I had him sit backwards on the toilet where he could see down in it. I know, that sounds gross! However, I told him if he would potty in the toilet it would make bubbles. He was so excited to see the bubbles lol. After he would have that pretty good then I taught him to stand and do it. Depending on age, the biggies issue is that he may not realize when he has to potty or when he has to poop. Until he can distinguish between the two urges, he may start to poop while standing. So, sitting is best in my opinion

Hi there wow don't miss that stage (the beginning) lol but from my experience boy's sit on the potty until they are able to go from potty - toilet. My first son didn't start standing until 4yrs and he started closing the door lol. Good Luck
