Training Little Boys

What a Big Boy!

For whatever reason, little boys seem to take longer potty training than little girls do. There are a number of theories floating around about the whys of it all, but suffice to say it is just that way.

Sit first

As a rule, a little boy learns to use the toilet first by sitting down and then later, once he makes the connection between elimination and the toilet, he gets to stand up and be a big boy. Until that great day, it helps to know that frequently the elimination process includes both bowel movement and urine elimination at the same time, so it is a safe bet that by teaching the little guy to sit, you're helping him make the association between the toilet and both forms of elimination.

Then stand - and clean up

Once he has the concept under his belt (so to speak), then he can progress to the higher realms of standing and peeing into the toilet - just like a big boy. It is helpful to have a male figure available to show the way, however, if that's not possible, having him stand on a stool or on your feet in front of the toilet is a good way to get him to the right height.

Then of course, there's the matter of aim. Again, there are myriad methods and ways out there to encourage the little guy to aim into the toilet instead of doing a spray job in the bathroom. Dropping some Cheerios into the toilet can help him with his aim and hopefully keep the walls safe for a little while. Truth be told though, you'll be doing a fair amount of cleanup initially, until he gets the hang of it.

Don't confuse the boy

Some moms never allow their boys to progress beyond the sitting stage, saying that they prefer that boys not stand; it's just cleaner that way. And it is. Also, since the little man has to sit down to have a bowel movement, having him sit to pee is good practice.

A toddler can become confused with having to do too many things at once, and if he is trained to stand in order to pee, he may end up with a messy accident should he not be able to turn around fast enough to have a bowel movement sitting down on the toilet.

A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do

When all is said and done, by the time your little boy is between two and three years old, he'll be interested in gender and will want to do what the males in his family are doing. So, that exposure alone will probably seal his desire to stand and pee - while you get to perfect the art of ensuring he gets to the toilet in time to do whatever else needs to be done.
