Moms Approve Of Boys Peeing In Locker Room Showers, Drains?A few years ago when at our neighborhood pool I overheard my oldest son and his cousins speak of peeing in the showers of the change room. I didn't think much of it at first as I myself have often peed through my swimsuit discreetly as showering and I knew growing up that other girls did so as well. After a while I began to realize that the boys weren't just discretely peeing throught their shorts, but rather they were doing it in an obvious "peeing contest" way! Before saying anything to the boys I brought up the subject with my sister-in-law (as her boys were among them) and was surprised to hear that she thought nothing of it, "yeah I know, boys will be boys," she commented. I spoke to a few other moms there that summer and again none of them were surprised or at all concerned about it.
This summer I took our little preschool boy to swimming lessons at the pool along with a couple of the same moms and their little ones. As they're preschool boys the moms all go into the dressing shower room with the boys to help them change and use the rest room. On the very first day I was surprised to see one of the little boys standing in the showers peeing toward the drain. I didn't know the boy, but I expected to see his mother run over and stop him as mothers often do when their kids do somthing embarresingly wrong. A mom never came to him, but he finished an went back to his mom waiting for him. No one else looked surprised or commented and before long another boy I didn't know whispered something to his mom whom was new here. His mom said "oh I don't know son" and then announced, "anyone know where the toilets are, naturally he's gotta pee?" My neighbor responded, "oh, they're back as you came in, but I think most of the boys around here pee in the showers anyway." The other moms chuckled or smiled and two of them openly agreed, one saying something like, "that's for sure, they pick that up quick and once they have you're not gonna stop them." The mom of the boy who just peed in the shower commented, "oh, boy will be boys, what's the differance, it's easier to just let them go." The new mom speaking to everyone said, "well being new here I didn't want to offend anyone" and motioned to her son to go into the showers, "but in ______ we always let the boys go in the showers too." No one seemed offended or even surprised with the conversation and by the end of the week every little boy was going pee in the showers or even over drains and the moms are all content with it.
While I expected sooner or later my little boy would pick that up from his older brothers or other boys, I felt a bit awkward being the one to tell him to just go over a drain, but the other boys were doing so and I knew eventually he would anyway. I knew that other moms were aware of what boys did and turned a blind eye to it, but I was surprised that none of the dozen or more moms in there were hesitant to tell their boys to just pee over a drain.
I'm currious to hear where boys first heard of doing this, freinds, brothers, parents. Guys, I'm currious if your parents are aware of where you pee and what moms and dads have to say about it. I'm currious about how bold the guys are about it, do you do it in front of anyone, just friends, do you tell about doing so. What would you're parrents, coaches, teachers say or do they know?
