  • I"d have to say over all girls are harder. Boys are more active and get hurt more, but it seems boys will go play and girls like to be stuck up your butt! LOL...not to mention the teenage years the girls have to seperate themselves from their mom, so they can be pretty hateful to their mom. It's a rough few years. I think you worry more about girls as teenagers, you do worry about the boys but it's like you think they are bigger and they can better protect themselves. And girls may get themselves into things they can't get out of....not to mention they can get pregnant!

  • Girls are far more expensive to raise. Boys you buy a pair of jeans they can wear it with any shirt they own. Buy a girl a dress or a skirt and it is one outfit one day and heaven forbid you want them to wear it again for the next month. My experience is boys were harder to potty train. In grade school the girls start the catty, cut each other to pieces crap. SOME Jr high girls are the most vile creatures ever put on this earth. They are both equally miserable as teens. Hormones, attitude and peers add to that. The good news is Most eventually pull their head out of their butt. The older they get the smarter you become to them.

  • As babies I think they are pretty even. As toddlers I think girls are easier. Boys tend to be more rambunctious and daring. At 18 months my ds was jumping off our bed,takingflying leaps. When they get older though I think boys are easier. Girls and hormones do not mix. That's what we are dealing with now. My dd is entering puberty and doesn't know how to handle her hormones and everyday is a different meltdown over something trivial.

  • I only have a boy, but I've worked with lots of children and have a 7 year old sister, and I hold the opinion boys are rougher as infants/toddlers and into trouble more, but girls quickly take the obnoxious role around 7-8 and don't grow out of it till high school, if even then. I also believe boys are much cheaper then girls clothing wise, and in my experience whine a lot less. However, boys are also louder then girls, by a long shot, and that never seems to go away. If I had it my way I'd raise a girl till she was 7-8, send her off to another relative, and take the 7-8 year old boy and keep him the rest of the time, thus avoiding the moody female and the loud obnoxious male!

  • I remember growing up and I was an easy kid up till I was 13. I wasnt that bad but my parents especially my dad flipped out when i started talking to guys, especially ones he didn't like. So I think its at that point where it goes from girls being the easiest, more well behaved etc to boys being easier cuz u dont worry as much.

  • I have a boy and a girl on the way. I'm already twice as nervous just because I know the bad things that can happen to girls! During my bog ultrasound I told the male intern to stop looking at my daughters' vagina before I even knew what I was saying!
