Would you teach your daughter to pee standing up?

So, DD2 is going to an outdoor school next year, which will be, as you might have guessed, outdoors. There is going to be limited outhouses, if any. I am considering the pstyle for the ladies of the house, including my 5 year old. I like that she won't need to pull her pants down to use it. I am curious to know how many would do the same for their girls.

I added a poll so please vote!

That's pretty neat. Idk if my almost 5 year old could master that though, at least not consistently. I'd be worried about spills.

I was getting a kick out of the vid! I don't know if I could master that, let alone a 5 yr old.

I would just teach her to squat and pee.

Re: Would you teach your daughter to pee standing up?

I have heard of the pstyle before. I am very intrigued, but not sure I am up for the learning curve...
If *I* am not sure I am ready to figure the thing out I am certainly not going to force it on my kid.
If I were in your situation I would probably order the thing and try it myself. If I could figure it out easily then I would offer it to the girls. If not, then they would make do with squatting in the bushes like mom does

ODD had a royal FIT the first time she had to pee in the woods. I thought she was going to pee her pants because she just wouldn't do it. Now she's got the hang of it though
