Pediatrics/Potty train sons


How should I teach my son to pee standing and to aim his pee? He is almost 4 years old and I am his father.

Hi, Augusto,

What a great question!  I with my son and grandson, often would put pieces of tissue in the toilet, and try to have them hit it.  I would often do "sword fighting" with them, both of us peeing and controlling our streams.  Be novel and do what you think will work.  

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
