Can a Target Make Potty Training a Boy Easier?

Can a Target Make Potty Training a Boy Easier?

If you are ready to start potty training your little boy and do not know where to turn, there is a good chance that you are looking for ways to make the process easier. While it is guaranteed to be a challenging and long process, that does not mean that you should not take the time to enjoy the personal growth and learning that is occurring. Teaching your small boy to use the bathroom properly is a great gift and can be rewarding for first-time parents, but can aids like a potty training target make the process easier?

Potty training is often confusing for children because they are so used to relying on diapers. So, the whole experience can be a little different than what they are used to. This is particularly true for boys that need to learn how to urinate standing up, although many parents tend to rely on splash guards initially to have the child sit no matter what method of evacuation they may be experiencing. But when variations between these methods become possible for boys and they need to start standing up, there are ways to make the process cleaner and more hygienic for the parents. One of the easiest things to implement is a potty training target, like BowlsEye, to improve the boy’s aim and turn toilet time into a game.

BowlsEye was developed by Guy Donahue to reduce urine splashback that is leaving the bowl of a toilet when used. With a target included in the design, it creates an inherent need for men to aim and can often be perceived as a skill-based game. Fortunately, this same inherent need is instilled in young boys that are potty training and the installation of a target can help ensure that their urine remains in the bowl and does not find its way into the surrounding tile, on the toilet itself or all over the walls. As you might imagine, this can create a very sticky situation for parents that are trying to navigate the process for the first time.

Although the elimination of urine splashback was the primary design goal of BowlsEye, many parents have found success in helping boys navigate the urination process by using the same product as a potty training target. While there are alternatives available on the market, they often do not provide the same level of splashback protection or the ability to remain hygienic for longer periods because they do not have the capability of self-cleaning. This feature alone has made BowlsEye the top choice for many parents that are searching for suitable potty training targets for their child.

Once installed, BowlsEye conveniently tucks away when the toilet seat is down and springs into action once the seat is lifted. This ensures that it is not visible when unnecessary and does not hinder other toilet times or create an obstacle. We have worked hard to ensure that once installed, it doesn’t hinder the polished look of your completed bathroom while it still works to maintain cleanliness, so you don’t have to constantly clean up urine splashes that have occurred during the potty training process. With the addition of Ty-D-Bowl cleaning tablets into alternative BowlsEye models, you can even reduce the amount of cleaning required between toilet scrubbings.
