Why Kids Pee When They Hear That 'Shhhh' Sound?

We can understand this better by Russian Scientist Ivan Pavlov's experiment with dogs. Dogs are known for creating a river of saliva inside their mouths when fed with meat slice. Pavlov in his experiment fed the dog with meat after ringing a bell.

He continued it for a while, and as days passed, the dog would automatically secrete saliva once it heared the bell, even when there was no meat. This means that reflexes that occur unconsciously by nervous system can triggered externally.

So parents do the same thing. Parents make that 'shhh' sound when their kid is peeing. Soon that kid's brain makes the connect between that sound and the action of peeing. So now whenever that kid hear 'shhhh' should, it automatically trigger the reflexes and help urinate.
