Ds still sits, it doent bother me, less mess :LOL

But when I tell other people that he still sits to pee they give me a funny look.

I have asked him if he wanted to stand to pee, but he says no. I am a single mama and there are no males in the house (except ds).

DS sits to pee unless there is a tiny urinal available (which is rare indeed).

He is 3.5 (4 in August)

Mine is 17 mo and obviously still in diapers, but it is my hope that he will sit to pee his whole life. I was 24 when I first dated a man who sat to pee and I was *extremely* impressed. I had never heard of such a thing. I told him to thank his mother on my behalf (he was peeing in my bathroom at the time, so I was a direct beneficiary), and vowed to him that if I ever had a son, I would teach him to sit to pee.

Who cares what other people think!? Are they gonna clean your bathroom?

My boys sit. Well, I'm 100% sure of the little one, the older one, last I was allowed in the bathroom with him, he was still sitting. Dunno now. When they were both learning to use the toilet, their father showed them how to stand and pee but both prefered to sit. Fine by me. It's never come up in conversation, so I don't know what others think of it. (Hmmm, it occurs to me now that I've just "outted" them. I never even knew it was an issue.)

My dh still sits to pee!! He is rather tall and never liked the mess and splashing. He stands at urinals--well I guess there really isn't another option. :LOL

I am sure dh would be mega-happy that I am telling everyone this, but he recently started sitting to pee. He does it all the time now. It started when dd kept following him in the bathroom and trying to play with the stream. :LOL

I prefer this since I clean the bathroom! I hadn't thought of it, but I think I might just go ahead and encourage this with ds when he starts to potty.

My mother and I were just talking about this because ds just went through potty learning (he is 26 months), and she said..."make sure Michael (dh) shows/explains how boys pee too-you don't want him to end up like the boys (my brothers)...."

My brothers are 9 and 13 and both still sit to pee (I hope they're not reading this) :
They are a product of a single mother raising also. Obviously by now they now how it goes, and I'm sure they use urinals at school, etc., but they're just set in their way by now, kwim?

My boy is seven and he almost always sits. He's another product of a single mom that potty trained him!

He will stand if he's naked - like if he's getting ready to take a shower. He doesn't like to just "pull it out". kekeke

Wow I never realized this was something that could bring funny looks from people. In my life some guys have sat and some have stood. My ds stands but his daddy doesn't. I just think my son thinks it's "cool" to aim and shoot but as long as he keeps his perfect aim it doesn't bother me.

My ds, is just about 7 and he sits to pee most of the time. Sometimes he will stand an use a urinal when dh takes him to the bathroom but that is very recent. I was also a single mum who potty trained him. DS's bio-dad was/is involved in his life and he didn't want to teach him to stand he said sitting was just fine.

What a funny thread! My ds is only 20 months, so I haven't started potty training yet, but I've wondered about this.

DH always stood to pee until he got tired of my complaints - so now he sits! :LOL I must admit - I much prefer it.

Glad to know that others sit to pee as well...I think I will just teach ds to sit and let him figure out the standing thing when and if he wants to when he's older.

Ds sits, too. It's kind of a pain in public, since he's afraid of falling in and is really too small still to sit on an adult toilet, so I have to hold him while he goes, but it's definitely better than what my sister had to deal with after my mom taught her ds to pee standing up. I was thinking now that ds is a bit older that I should teach him (or get dh too), but I'm not so sure now. Maybe I should just teach him to do it at public washrooms so I don't have to hurt myself holding him?
