How do you feel about your boys peeing in public?

I've never been big on my boys peeing in public.

I'm not a fan of peeing outside either. I may change my mind this summer though! I only say that because we've had the hardest time toilet training Landon and I've heard that one way to do it is allow them to go naked outside. That said, we have a fully fenced yard. I will say though that I once caught Cooper doing it outside last summer and I nearly flipped out. I just think that when they are that age, they can walk their little bums inside and use the bathroom. I would never, and have never, allowed my kids to pee outside in a public place.

On a side note, the last time we were in Disneyland a little girl peed on the walkway area right by the Dumbo ride. I was horrified. However, I found out that in some cultures it isn't a big deal at all. Strange!

Peeing outside is not an option as far as I'm concerned. We live in town and our neighbors are fairly close. The bathroom is not that far away. Now that isn't to say there hasn't been a couple emergency stops on the highway in the middle of nowhere with the screaming potty-training 2/3yo who has to go RIGHT NOW! LOL

To me it isn't so much the being naked thing (for little ones anyway, once you're about 5yo, you need to keep it covered!). It is more about them learning that it is okay to go somewhere besides the bathroom and then whipping it out to pee in the least convenient (aka most embarrassing) of places. My luck it would be a store, the local pool or playground, or the neighbor's front yard. So to avoid confusion, we just stick with the bathroom around here. :-)
