Training for toilets – teaching the loo manners to your little ones

Kids are our naughty little darlings. Teaching them anything is super fun but also a lot of work. The one thing that every parent must start as soon as possible is toilet manners. Your kids will be much appreciated if they know the how and when and everything else of loo manners. Here looking at five toilet manners for each gender.

The little girls

  • Girls need to sit while peeing (obviously!). Teach them to squat only on the toilets that need squatting. Not all toilets need squatting; in fact, it makes the toilet seat dirty. Tell them to strictly avoid doing that.
  • Teach them the importance of cleanliness. Tell your little princess to flush properly after finishing up. Not flushing is one of the cardinal sins when it comes to toilet manners. You don’t want to be embarrassed when you take your girl to a friend’s place.

Sanitation PeeBuddy

  • Tell them not to place their bags on the floor of the bathrooms. The same bag they carry everywhere from their classrooms to bedrooms and that is how the germs spread. They should hang the bags from hooks or keep it outside while entering.
  • Tell your girl not to litter inside the toilet. This is one advice that will stay with them when they grow up and start having their first periods. They will remember to not litter the bathrooms with their sanitary napkins.
  • Wiping away properly after she is done is the basic manner that she needs to learn. The little girl must not forget to wipe away clean after she is done taking the dump.

Training for toilets

The little boys

  • The first thing that you must teach a boy is to pee in the pot and not everywhere else. The biggest problem that the boys have is aiming for the pot rightly. Tell him that it is a strict no-no if he drops it anywhere else.
  • Tell him that it is okay to sit in the pan if your little boy is not steady on his feet to stand and pee. Teach him that sitting does not make him any less of a guy and he is definitely not imitating girls by doing this.
  • Washing of their hands is another manner of prime importance. Your little boy must clean his hands with water every time he goes to the toilet. Teaching him that washing of hands is not only for when he goes for potty.
  • Teaching to flush is something that you need to tell both the girls and boys. He must keep the toilets clean by flushing up and then putting the toilet seat down after his work is done.
  • The last piece of advice is to tell them not to look away or sideways while peeing. This makes them miss the pot and pee everywhere else which is so not done. The little boys do not to concentrate when they pee!

Toilet Etiquette

Toilet Etiquette

Are you being called a “ Toilet Bumbo “ behind your back???
Read the pointers below and avoid being an unpleasant co-worker / room mate / co-diner.

• Do not leave it wet. Don’t spill water on the floor. Wipe the wash basing after use and don’t leave your marks behind on the seat cover.

• Always carry along your own wet wipes, soft tissues so that in case you need to use a public toilet and you find the tissues/ toilet roll missing, your personal supplies can come handy.

• Door handles, knobs, faucet and sanitary bins are not likely the uncontaminated stuff to lay a hand on. So you must use wet wipes/hand sanitizer every time you need to touch them.

• Cleanse and rub hands with soap thoroughly for bare minimum 10 seconds

• Avoid the air dryers to dry your wet hands. They are likely to suck in bacteria from the surrounding air and puff it out on your hands. Bacteria grow well in hot spots and the dryers only give them the favourable environment.

• Never ever step and sit on onto the seat! The individuals doing the toilet cleaning don’t need that extra bit of work and neither does the subsequent user.

• Use odour controlling Disposal Bags. Dispose of sanitary pads, tampons & baby diapers only in disposal bags & throw them in dustbins. Do not clog toilets and sinks with these.

• Do not chuck tissues, random lint balls, candy wrappers and other debris like hair strands etc. into the wash basin, floor or urinal. Its very annoying for the other toilet users and cleaners.

• Always flush. Spare a few seconds to check and if one flush is not enough Please Re-flush!

• Do not chitchat in wash rooms. Contrary to the conviction of some office staff, a public bathroom is not a workspace with an attached toilet. For that reason, don’t utilize this particular space to gossip, conduct business or to make phone calls.

Last but not the least….Do Not Put up with unhygienic toilets. Use Pee Buddy to stand up & pee !!!!
