those of you that have both and they are a little older, like teens or preteens (those that they are younger too but the older they are the more diff they get) what are the major differences? my dd is 3 1/2 and my son is 4 weeks so i'm just wondering what to expect from him i guess. i know what to expect from her as she gets older, but no clue what to expect from boys. so from this age on up (especially puberty that part scares me, i know what she'll be going through but not him and that bugs me) what can i expect to be the major diff? guess i'm just bored b/c she is playing with her uncle and he's napping and this is what i think about at 4 a.m. when he won't sleep...:)Answer Question

I don't know a lot about raising girls, I have 4 boys. My oldest is going through puberty, the youngest is 22 months. One thing that shocked me is boys love their pee pees! From the time they realize it's there they pull it, rub it, flick it.... as long as they're touching it they're happy! It dies down from around 5 til they are about 11, but they still do it, just more discreetly.
Also.... boys get dirty. I feel the need to announce the time of my LOs last bath every time we go out... I swear he sweats dirt!
And boys are rough! They push, shove, wrestle, etc. And if you tell them not to they look at you like you're crazy.
My boys are all very different, but they are all guilty of all of these typically boy behaviors!
And people say girls are harder, but I really don't think so. Not when they're young!
Good luck!! Boys are fun!
