The ONE simple trick to stop your boys from peeing on the toilet seat

Right before Christmas we had a microwave and a toilet break in the same day.  We headed to Lowe’s and got replacements.  I’m not even going to mention the hanging of the over the range microwave.  It wasn’t fun! :).  Toilets are easy.  We have the nice new one in now.  We even bought a toilet seat for the boys bathroom because theirs was so disgusting.  Of course I lectured the boys on not ruining the new toliet seat.

My mother-in-law had a good idea so we tested it out.  It worked!

We kept the toilet seat down.

I told my daughter that when she went to the bathroom to lower the lid when she was done.  If I was washing my hands and noticed it up, I closed it.  I told my husband the same thing.  Keep the lids closed!

When the boys went to the bathroom they lifted the lid AND the seat!    I wish I had learned about this when I was potty training them.  It would have made life so much easier for me.  No more sitting in pee!!  The bonus is that the bathroom stays cleaner!

Let me know if it works for your family.

    My mom broke my brother of doing this in just a few days. Every time she caught it she drug him into the bathroom for him to clean it up, even in the middle of the night. That crap stopped pretty quick.
    Yes, boys and men you can pee without making a mess for someone else to clean up.
    And just for a laugh here, he used to think it was ok for him to tell my mom just before church service was over that he needed to go to the bathroom. She would take him and they would leave being service was almost over. She put a stop to that also when she made him go back to the next service and attend that one also. He realized he really didn’t need to go bad enough to leave church early. Mom didn’t have much trouble getting her point across. We love and miss you momma………

      Lady you sterotype boys and men so much. You complain and cry so much and claim that women have to do all the work while man just lay around and all boys are filthy disgusting little creatures who are the only ones responsible for messing up bathrooms. You stereotype so much I’m surprised your husband and boys haven’t gotten out of their mind furious with you yet. I know I sure remember being a little boy and hearing my mom say stuff like that every once in awhile and feeling quite sad and depressed about it. Think before you act. For your children.

        I never said any of those things. This is a simple trick I used to teach my children to lift the seat when they pee, that’s all. I thought I would share it with other moms that have the same problem.

          Dont stress his comment. Probably a seat pee’er himself. Its a known fact that boys pee the seat and are by far messy in the bathroom. They are busy bodies. We are messy in our own ways. He is alittle insecure of himself thats all

    It is way more sanitary to keep the lid closed, anyway. When you flush, all that you’re body has expelled into the toilet splashes around during the flushing process. So if you’re not closing the lid when you flush, all that urine and flecks of feces is spraying onto the seat, the floor… anything near the toilet.
    This is why they have lids and seats to begin with.

    Thank you!!! Why didn’t I think of that! I’ve been asking my husband for 8 years to lift the seat. I’m definitely going to try this!
