Teaching Boys to Pee Standing Up or Sitting Down

Pee Controversy: Sitting Lessens Mess or Emasculates Boys?

Potty training is messy business and hits and misses are part of the process for lil boys. Though 73 percent of LilSugar readers said they taught their sons to pee sitting down, their reasons varied.

Several moms instructed their lil ones to sit, but then had dad demonstrate the standing technique. Other mamas told their tykes to pop a squat (like Kate Gosselin did), to cut down on cleanup. Then, there were mothers that taught their sons to stand since they believe that it is "emasculating to make a boy pee sitting down."

Do you think the way a child urinates affects his masculinity?
