How to Teach Boys to Pee Standing Up

Boys do not need to urinate standing up. During toilet training, boys, like girls, should learn to pee sitting down. Essentially all toilet training experts agree about this.

There are many reasons to teach boys to urinate sitting:

• Most people urinate when they have a bowel movement, immediately before, or . The two are associated naturally and trying to separate them makes learning more difficult.

• Standing to urinate involves more skills.

• Most boys of toilet training age will have difficulty aiming accurately.

• Even if they can aim, boys may not want to. Either way, this means more work for parents who must clean up.
