The Toilet Training Etiquette Guide

2016-12-12-2As a mum of two boys I know exactly how frustrating it is to walk into the bathroom and find a complete mess and puddles of urine after your little one has used the toilet. Unfortunately, teaching your boy to aim, is a stage every mother will have to go through (and for any women who live with older men too) but with a little bit of creative imagination, it can be done!

 

  • Practise, Practise, Practise – Before you even get near the toilet there are a couple of tricks you can teach your boy to help him ‘get his eye in.’ When they’ve finished taking a shower, allow them to pee and aim at the drain. You can even create a point scheme with the highest points rewarded when they never miss the drain. This may not be to everyone’s taste but its better a mess in the shower or bath which you can wash away, than on your tiling or wallpaper!

 

  • Turn it into a game – Little boy’s minds can wander very easily, and whilst they should be concentrating on their aim into the toilet, they can easily drift off and start thinking about other things… Many mothers will no doubt agree that they are fed up with the cleaning aftermath of their children going to the bathroom so capture their imaginations by transforming the toilet into an activity zone. This was exactly why I invented Pisher, a fun electronic toilet target that projects a spaceship onto the exact spot boys should be aiming for. To really improve their manners this nifty gadget will also applaud and congratulate them when they shut the lid. For extra fun add a drop of washing up liquid into the bowl before he pees. Then when he does the water will create lots of little bubbles which should make the whole process that bit easier.

 

  • Offer Praise – It’s an age old technique but one that’s highly successful. By creating a reward scheme and offering encouragement to your child when they’re learning to be neat and tidy in the bathroom they’ll be far more inclined to do a good job! Whether you decide to create a simple gold sticker chart or you offer them a treat after each trip to the loo, your son or daughter will quickly learn that good behaviour equals a good reward.

 

  • Extra Support – Sometimes it’s not necessarily the boys fault that his aim isn’t up to scratch. It could be that he’s just not quite tall enough to have a clear visual of where he should be peeing. Give him that extra support he needs and purchase a simple stool or step that will mean he doesn’t have to struggle and he can lean his body to just the right position to help him in his mission.

 

  • Like Father Like Son – Young children learn by example so sometimes a live demonstration from Dad helps them understand the proper aiming technique. The big toilet can be scary so if Dad can offer that extra bit of support and companionship the experience may be less daunting – it’s also a good bonding experience for both.

Lazertouch mini projector transforms a surface into 150-inch touchscreen

Lazertouch - lifestyle photo - playing drumsEasitech announced today Lazertouch, the world’s first mini projector that transforms any surface into a finger-activated touchscreen. Small, weighing just 5 ounces, Lasertouch  projects a tablet-sized 20-inch to gigantic 150-inch display onto any wall or surface to create a virtual touchscreen and interactive white board for meetings, presentations, 3D movies, immersive gaming, VR, and more. Winner of 7 patents, with 5 years of R&D research, Lazertouch emits an invisible laser beam parallel to the projection screen. Much like a scene from a futuristic movie, when a finger or stylus touches the laser beam, the sensor detects and interprets the touch to add your comments, double click on an icon, stop or start a movie, or do anything else you would normally do with a touchscreen computer or device.

Lazertouch works the same as a tablet PC, featuring a built-in Android OS, downloadable apps, speakers, 32GB of storage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 13,600mAh rechargeable battery, and ports for HDMI, USB, headphones and Micro SD. Lazertouch comes with an IR e-pen stylus, remote control, and pointer.

When conducting a group meeting, Lazertouch projects an approximately 15-inch screen on a desk or table that can be operated by finger or stylus as you would a tablet. Its versatile operation lets you transition to full screen on an up to 150-inch wall when more people come into the meeting – and it even works with interactive advertising boards. Lazertouch’s LED projection lamp also promises years of use with an estimated lifetime of over 30,000 hours. See the Youtube video for meeting demo:
