Do you think boys are harder to raise than girls?? When ever someone asks me if I have kids I tell them a boy & almost all the time they say "Oh I would have boys anyday over girls they are to moody" what do you think??

  • I have 4 sons who are 23, 22, 19 and 17 and an 18yo girl. Give me boys any day. The girl is moody, she needs things her way or no way and she doesn't bend. The boys are more flexible, they aren't as moody.

  • My son is a lot easier than my niece is. They are 13 months apart (he's 12, she's 11) and there is no way I could handle raising her. She is sooo moody and snotty.

  • Its hard to say but my daughters were so different -one was girly and moody and the other was a tomboy and aggresive. My son was the joker of the family-funny and creative but moody too. There are no types here-they were each pretty easy to raise though.

  • I wouldn't know. I have 3 boys lol. But i think it depends on the ages. young boys are rowdy and they like to rough house wereas young girls don't. But as teenagers the girls do have pretty serious mood swings and well boys don't

  • I believe every kid is different and I try not to buy into the whole boys-do-this and girls-do-that way of thinking. But that's just me.
