Are there any other single mothers of boys who are in the potty-training process?

I am a single mom of a 2 year old boy and I am in the process of getting him potty trained but I'm finding it slightly difficult to figure out a way to try and teach him to stand up and pee on the potty. Right now he sits on the potty to do both but he'll be 3 in December and as he gets a little older I would like him to try it that way since he will be starting school next September {2013}. I was just wondering if there are any other single moms out there who are going through the same thing as me and who would be willing to give me some advice on trying to help.

I'm not a single mom but my son still sometimes pees sitting down. There is nothing wrong with it and it's actually much cleaner for you. If you really want him to pee standing up put something in there for him to aim at, I've heard of parents using Cheerios or ping ping balls.
