    Default Young boys going to the toilet question

    Ds is 5yrs old and when he urinates, he stands up. Now he pulls his pants and underpants all the way down past his bottom (so you see his bottom).
    I've tried to teach him to just pull the front down, but he doesn't remember.
    Now, he starts school this week and I'm wondering if it's "normal" for boys his age. Otherwise I'll tell to go into the cubical rather then urinals.

    My son is 4 and doesn't pull his pants down but he's super lazy so doesn't surprise me. It hasn't been a taught thing for my son but maybe noticed from his daddy.

    Both my boys pull their pants down.
    They are 5 & 3, if they didn't they'd wet themselves most times I think.

    I think it's normal. My DS isn't toilet trained yet but I remember my little brother doing it

    Totally normal and probably a good thing as I found when my boys didn't pull them down that far they would often manage to urinate on their pants somehow.

    Didn't really take much notice tbh but ds only has cubicles in his section of the school as kindy, year 1 and 2 are fenced off in their own area.

    My 4 and 2 year olds only pull the front down but their friends pull down all the way.

    My 5 yr old ds pulls all way down to his ankles, he's only just started weeing standing up though.
