71 Percent of Moms Taught Son to Pee Sitting Down

Best of 2010 in Numbers: 71% of Moms Taught Sons to Pee Sitting Down

Pop a squat or stand and stream? Tots decide when it's time to ditch the diaper, but parents figure out how their boys will learn to pee. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests training boys to sit on the potty so there is no confusion between urination and bowel movements. Many moms prefer to teach their sons to stand so they can pee like their fathers, and do so faster. Seventy-one percent of moms said they taught their boys to sit. Some mothers said they chose this method to cut down on cleanup, and then there were those who opposed the practice because they felt it was emasculating.
