I’m asking this way in advance but I just heard someone on fb say that boys don’t touch their bris while they pee!!
Is this true?
I thought they’re not supposed to touch while they are having those thoughts but that’s when they’re older like in their teens or so when puberty is happening and their brains are changing.

I have 2 younger brothers and they always aimed

How did you toilet train your son if he’s not supposed to touch himself?

Doesn’t the pee go EVERYWHERE? I figured no mother wants a bathroom smelling of pee and cleaning up pee stains.

They are allowed to touch and aim. Don’t listen to nonsense.

They hold and aim when they're little. When they're older, they aim by holding on to it with a cloth, such as their underwear.

Your DH should be teaching your son. That's his job. He's the one who can demonstrate the technique he wants your son to learn.

You're kind of "ill equipped" for the job. Wink

My husband deals with this. But he teaches the boys to sit down. Less mess.

My kids were not taught to hold, sorry. Unless there is a physical issue (or an irregular issue), a boy should be able to lean over the toilet standing and aim straight in. Sometimes when they're younger they have to tiptoe a bit to reach over the rim, or use a low stepping stool.. That's been my experience bh. Chassidishe too.

Your husband is my hero! Very Happy

IMHO, boys and men should only stand up to pee if they are outdoors and camping. If there is a decent toilet, they should use it in a civilized manner.

I have a friend with many kids B'H, and she has designated boys' and girls' bathrooms. The girls' bathroom always smells like perfume, and the boys' bathroom always smells like a truck stop.

She bleaches down every single surface, cracks in the floor, all the way up the walls, and the smell comes back within an hour or two. It's the bane of her existence!

I only used the boys' bathroom once, when the girls were taking too long. NEVER AGAIN. I learned to hold it, or respectfully ask the parents if I could use their en suite.

We also teach to sit down for the mess factor. With little boys, they sometimes need to be taught / reminded to tuck it down pointing to the bowl. I assume they hold and aim if out somewhere with disgusting facilities (an option I wish I had!), but at home and in normal clean places sitting is the way to go.

I just love this idea.

Just as an aside, as a mother of mostly sons, train them to put down the seat!

This. But one of my boys did have an issue and could not aim without holding it down a bit, it would go straight on the wall! And now my dd tells me her son has the same problem.

She should have him checked by a urologist if the hole is too small. Sometimes if the hole is too small it shoots out with too much pressure and can't be aimed properly. Had it with some of my boys. It's a pretty easy outpatient procedure to fix. My bathrooms have been clean since LOL .

Dr said he sees it a lot with boys that had a bris. Something about the way it heals that can cause the hole to be too small.

I trained all my boys sitting. They still need to tuck it down unless the potty has a splash guard in the front.
I never said anything to them about touching. Some have this chumrah but I think that's when they're much older.
Your son is too little but in the right time please train him to use the bathroom with manners even if it involves some touching.

My boys never had a need to touch anything. If they’re standing straight it automatically goes in the toilet.

It had nothing to do with the hole. Without being too tmi, his 'thingy' was a bit short, was not long enough to point downward.
