  • I assume you mean easier. I think it's equally difficult in the long run, but harder at different times. During the toddler/ preschool years, I'd rather have a girl. During the preteen/ teen years, I would stay far, far away from girls.

  • Neither. Both have good points or bad.
    Girls are less likely to blow things up or burn them down. Less likely to break their own bones or someone elses.
    Boys don't have nearly as much teenage drama, won't end up pregnant by some unknown guy.

    Both need love, attention, and discipline all childhood long.

  • Boys are easier. My sons were and are more laid back and kind of lower keyed.. My girls omg DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA I should have had them But they were typical girls and I would not have traded them for boys. Like someone said before, each has their points. The girls were more challenging and made life interesting. My sons don't seem to get excited about things like us girls do, they never giggled and screamed, gossiped, changed clothes 10 times a day, cried because their hair would not do what they wanted, had to look for weeks for just the right dress for an occasion and take three friends so they could help pick it out. etc.. The funny thing is girls can be exhauting sometimes and now that they are grown I really miss it......BUT I HAVE GRANDAUGHTERS!

  • I think its easier to raise girls when they are young(0-11) but boys when they are older(11-19)

  • I think it depends on the child personally. Until my oldest became a teen she was the perfect child. Rarely cried, never threw fits, polite, ate, slept well never fought with her brother. Now she's the total opposite. My youngest girl was a handful since birth. But I don't label them. They are who they are. And I wouldn't take them any other way.
