we are planning to start potty training ds 2.11 over Easter. He has already, on occassions, used the potty just before his bath for a wee. However he stands over it (with about as much aim as dp !) to pee. Obviously copying Dad. Should we let this continue or get him if possible to sit down so he learns to sit down for all toilet visits ?
He will need to stand up at some point, so let it continue. (although i know some people who get their kids to sit at 5 and 6 becuase of the mess they make) You can try putting a cheerio or weeto in the potty or toilet to give him something to aim at.
