Tales from the Potty: Teaching them to Aim
I am completed outnumbered 3 to 1 in my household. While the boys are great about leaving the seat and lid down, as far as toilet etiquette is concerned, there's much room for improvement. I oftentimes find myself on my hands and knees cleaning up the after effects of a last minute dash to the bathroom whereby my oldest son barely has time to wiggle out of his underwear. He shoots. Some of it goes in. Most make it on the seat, while the rest dribbles down the toilet. Living with boys is certainly messy. Other than teaching them to pee sitting down (which in my humble opinion is sort of an odd request of what appears to be an utterly primal behavior), how do you teach your boys to aim and pee so that it lands within a reasonable target? At what age do they start developing better bathroom etiquette? Or is this just something I have to live with?
