My eight year old son has always been rather messy when peeing, it frequently seems to end up on the rim or on the floor, which I am getting very tired of! I have spoken with him about it often and he's promised to be careful, but he says sometimes it's hard to control the direction.
I'm a single mom, but I spoke to my sister about it and she said her two boys and husband occasionally have poor 'aim', but she said it's infrequent, and just something that happens with males.
I have been wondering whether my son's problem has something to do with him being uncircumcised. I know my nephews are both circumcised, and they don't seem to have any problem.
Should I have taught my son to pull back his foreskin to pee? I don't recall reading or being told anything about this. His foreskin started to retract when he was about 4 I think, but I only ever taught him to do it in the shower.
Any help would be appreciated!
