How do I train son to pee standing up?

How do I train son to pee standing up?

Modeling....: Little boys often learn by observing bigger boys — including their dads! This will happen in time without much, if any intervention. Try not to make a big deal about it, though be encouraging when he achieves the goal! Oh, BTW, if your little one's penis can't reach the toilet, get a stepstool or a little potty so he has an even chance! Good luck. LGromkoMD ...Read more

How should I teach my 4 year old son to pee standing up? I am his father.

How should I teach my 4 year old son to pee standing up? I am his father.

If he's not tall : Enough to stand on the floor to urinate into the toilet, you may want to wait awhile. The most stable stool that goes around a toilet is a little looster, if you feel you must teach him now. If he feels insecure or scared, he can regress to diapers or have toileting refusals. If you want him to watch you from a safe place, target a few cheerios or tinkle targets (from amazon) with your stream. ...Read more

Hi my 9 yr old son has pain when he pees and said afta he pees he gets erect, what might this be?

Hi my 9 yr old son has pain when he pees and said afta he pees he gets erect, what might this be?

Pain vs. erections: Depends on how many penis conversations a parent has had with a son. If they have already talked about a penis being soft and just hanging there, then hard and sticking out, then soft again for no apparent reason; and that this normal penis behavior happens to all boys and young men; then the pain complaint may be real. Otherwise, young boys may say pain when they first become aware of erections. ...Read more

Probably normal: 2 1/2 is early 4 some boys 2 have urinary control & often start wetting again at age <3 years. Hoope urine doesn't have a bad smell suggesting uti, also get urine checked at next routine dr's visit. Can try leaving him naked or without pants & underwear in yard if this is appropriate & it is warm enough. Can also be done at home if there is a tile or easy 2 clean linoleum floor, can c himself pee. ...Read more

My 8 year old son still pees in his bed what should I do?

My 8 year old son still pees in his bed what should I do?

Do not worry: Night time enuresis is common. Usually there is a first degree relative (parent, aunt, uncle, cousin) who also we t the bed. After age 7 the best treatment I have found is a bed-wetting alarm. Available at medical supply places, it still has the best track record for resolving this issue. ...Read more

See his pediatrician: For a physical exam ; 1st-voided am urine specimen (after he's had no food or liquids overnight). Document frequency, situation ; location when diurnal enuresis (daytime wetting) occurs, what other symptoms are present, how you respond to his wetting, ; whether he's ever been dry for 6 months.

Do you need to physically demonstrate peeing in the toilet to potty train your son?

Do you need to physically demonstrate peeing in the toilet to potty train your son?

No: Generally they can model what they see and by that age, what they are taught. Remember that true training probably does not occur until the child can not stand being wet and wants to avoid it no matter what they are doing. A child who does not care if they are wet or dirty has no real motivation to stop other more fun things to stay dry. ...Read more

My son came home today and says his penis hurts but only when he moves a certain way or touches it not when he pees?

Penis and a child: I am not sure. I have red flags going up about this. It could be as simple as he fell or bumped it. But, I would get to a pediatrician's office if there seems anything abnormal or if there is any bruising or swelling or panicking pain. ...Read more

No sugar: I would not put sugar in the food. It's better for your son to get used to the way food tastes without the added sugar. Babies can be picky at first and sometimes you have to keep offering a food repeatedly before they learn to like the flavor. It's ok to try a different food for a while and then go back to peas. Eating food is new for him and you. Just give him time. ...Read more

My 3.5 year old son is potty trained, but doesn't want to pee standing up. Is it important that he learns how to do this?

In time he'll change: In early childhood kids often want to do what they did yesterday rather than trying something new. Change can generate anxiety & its hard for adults to understand why it would. In time, dad can model the behavior or his friends at daycare will provide the peer pressure needed for him to change. Give it time and be comforting, he needs you to be an anchor even when he seems to hold back. ...Read more

My 3yr old son is always peeing every 5 minutes or fewer even if it's a few drops and he got a simple wounds that takes time to heal is he diabetic?

Unlikely: The best answer is to do a urinalysis at the doctor for urine sugar. That is an age when boys can be preoccupied with urination and focus on it a lot. Wound healing is another chapter...depends on what lon means.
Do suggest a consult with HEALTHTAP. For that. ...Read more
