Peeing while standing

Peeing while standing

Hi, my Son is now almost 4 y/o. He was potty trained 3 mos ago, but when he started potty training, ABA taught him to take all lower body dressing off , and done sitting on toilet.
He learned that , but he is not wanting to try in standing , or just put pants/ briefs halfway down. I understand bec he is used to taking them all off.
How can I teach him to do it standing, or train him not to take pants/ briefs all the way?
Pls share some ideas. Thanks.

I'm wondering what the big deal is on standing. I'm not a boy, so I don't understand. Why can't they just sit? Is there a reason it is necessary for them to stand other than that's what boys/men usually do?

My 12 year old, high functioning, son still sits. My Mom asked me why a few months ago and I said, I don't know, it's his choice how he goes to the bathroom. She said, oh...ok...lol. Please tell me what I'm missing.

PS. My 23 year old son stood and my 5 year old stands

I've never pushed this with my son (now 11). When he DOES stand, he makes an unholy mess...he has some major motor skill issues that make this unavoidable. Men's rooms have stalls, so he just goes in there. As long as he's peeing, I don't care whether he's doing it sitting. Honestly, he's really self-conscious, so he'd probably melt down if he had to stand next to someone else on full display...

The boy I watch twice a week learned to pee standing up a few months after being potty trained last year when he was 8 years old. Standing has an advantage when the stalls are being used and you only have a urinal to use and the boy needs to go! My boy was fascinated once he learned to use the urinal and for a while he went 6 or 7 times while we were eating lunch and playing in the play area at a restaurant for 45 minutes or so. I could always give him positive reinforcement since he actually did pee every time. He is pretty good about not peeing everywhere, though he doesn't always lift the lid when standing at a toilet. He also surprises me at times like when he was standing at the urinal and then turned around and sat in it. I think it is best to teach them everything and make them feel comfortable standing or sitting.
