Long time reader first time blogger. I've always used this site as a great source of helpful information in raising my three children. Not sure if this blog is still current as I only just came across it when looking up some information to help my sister with her little boy and toilet training. Although her little boy aged 3 needed help with peeing as well not just poo.
He was keen to stand up on a stool and pee straight into the toilet as he didn't want to have to sit (to quote "Pee like a girl")
When searching on the net i found this cool Australian product called the widdleman.
Here's a link http://widdleman.com/
You stick it onto the back toilet wall. It has a target and when your child pees onto the target it gives him a score on the little LCD screen and offers words of encouragement.
It's really cute. Just bought one for my little man. I can highly recommend it.
And one thing I really liked is that it told him to remember to put the seat down. Teach them while there young i say.
Come to think of it, my husband has be retrained. What do they say about old dog and new tricks:)
