    Dumb question here: for wee wees do you get your little boys to stand up and point at the potty or sit down and point down?

    Vicpark - my ds (3) sits down to pee - I'm dreading the day he wants to stand to pee - I've heard stories from friends who have older boys who say that the pee goes everywhere! Lol

    3. Wait until 27 months when child is developmentally ready, i.e. has bladder control and ability to communicate it, plus maturity to embrace the independence.
    4. Incorporate short times on the potty as part of your daily routine. Quick sit down (don't force the issue) before morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, before leaving the house. Keep it positive and be patient. Tension will cause resistance.
    5. Wee-wee dance. Go crazy. It's the best reward, kids love it. Complete with a song, you'll work it out.
    6. Put a disposable nappy under your child in the car to avoid wet carseats but still allowing child to feel themselves get wet if they have an accident.
    7. Buy a spare (identical) potty and leave it in the car.
    8. Stress free! It's no big deal, and make sure you act that way. Kids will sometime resist is they sense potential for power struggles.
    9. If it isn't working, stop and give it another go in another month or so.
    I certainly agree with number 1. You can't do it half hearted. Once I took my daughter out of the house with no nappy, she had one accident, didn't like having the accident, and from that moment on she would tell me she needed to go.

    My other tip is to get the toilet seat that has two steps and goes over your toilet. ($20 from k mart). This means child will be using the toilet and you can flush it away rather than having to use a potty. I hate the idea of having potties around the house with wee in them that you have to clean, yuk.

    DS1 sits down the majority of the time but occasionally he'll stand on a step. He has only had a couple accidents standing but after one of them he said to me maybe he should just sit down for now.

    I've heard a ping pong ball helps them aim. Also you can buy mini urinals to put on the wall to help teach boys to stand easier.

    Definitely sitting to begin with, otherwise it would just be a huge mess. My 3yo is on the toilet all the time now but he always sits to wee still.
