start with sitting down, everyone sits on the potty, so the two of you can sit together and be comfortable when daddy isn't around!

My oldest son sits down to use the bathroom and our middle son does both so I think it is up to you and your child in what you think should be done, although our middle son does a lot of looking around while he goes and gets on the floor but other wise I do what ever they feel is right.

In my home even daddy pees sitting down, so we will train our son to sit as well. It is SO unsanitary for men to stand and pee. Get a black light and check out your bathroom, even after you have cleaned. You will be shocked at the places the pee manages to splatter. Only in public will my son be allowed to pee standing up, since all the other guys do, including daddy. At home, we try to be as clean as possible so that means peeing sitting down and closing the lid prior to flushing to minimize all splatter!
