TOPIC: peeing with son
 
peeing with son
2 Years, 3 Months ago
I taught my son to pee standing about 5 months ago up by having him watch me go. He is 4 now and still likes to come into the bathroom when I am peeing to watch me go. We also pee in the toilet together sometimes and have a "pee race" to see who can finish first. Is it OK to let him continue to watch?

Well, since you're asking, I'd say you're starting to feel a bit uncomfortable with it. (Not necessarily between you two, but at least about what others think.) So, I'd consider backing off a bit. Perhaps just tell him, "No, you know how. You can go by yourself now, like a big boy!" Or "Ok, but next time, you have to go by yourself."

Our bathroom isn't big enough for us both to use the toilet. But my son did come and watch me several times in the beginning of his PT. We would take turns. He still goes in the stalls with me when we're out in public. But generally, I try NOT to go when he does. But for me, it's more MY issue. He's also 4 now, and it's starting to feel weird to ME.

I do still go in with HIM of course. He's at about an 80% success rate. I feel most of that is because he is OFTEN encouraged to go, or made to go (can't leave and go to the park until after potty, etc.). Our challenge now is to get him to cross that line where HE decides when to go, every time. I figure we'll be at a 95% success rate within the next 6 months or so.

Thanks for posting. Keep us updated on your progress!

Sure why not?

The boy (4.5) and I have races every once in a while too, it reminds me of when I was a kid and I used to do this with my brother. I think that if he thinks its fun and I don't care, then why not have fun? At some point I'm sure he will no longer find this to be "fun" and then we'll stop. Until then, why not enjoy feeling young again?

The funniest thing, however, was this little conversation:

Boy: "daddy whoever wins the race wins the 'pissin cup'."
Me: "What?!"
Boy: "You know, the pissin cup -- from Cars."
Me: "Oh! You mean the PISTON cup."

haha...........

HA! "He did WHAT in his cup!?"

Semi-related... TheBoy took his first pee-test yesterday at his yearly doc appt. So I sat him down and held the cup...

"I like peein' in a cup. When we get home, I want to pee in a cup some more."

DOH!

The lil' bugger was clean and hasn't been doin' drugs, much to my relief. Apparently he's just naturally crazy. (Was just a general test looking at kidney function and such.)

Absolutely nothing wrong with it. He's curious -- loves sharing anything fun or playful. This is all good stuff. Nothing shameful about his body or its functions. Cross swords all you like -- just don't let mom catch you making a mess.
