my son is 4 1/2 and has just started to stand up in the last 6 months or so. We've been trying to get him to stand up for over a year and he just wasn't ready. Daddy even showed him how and he just wouldn't. I just think that if it's not right for them, it won't happen. Just keep encouraging him and he'll get it. One thing that I think did help my son was this.... he would try leaning on the toilet to pee. But the porcelain was cold so I put a cloth between him and the porcelain of the toilet so he didn't feel the cold when he leaned in. This really did help and soon he realized he didn't need to lean.
