  • They both have their unique difficulties and really it depends on their personalities too. I have a very high spirited boy and a mellow girl, but my friend is the opposite.

  • I have a boy so I wouldnt know for sure, but from what I see around (friends, relatives...etc), I think it depends on the kid's personality.

  • I have 3 boys and 1 girl and definitely the boys for me; they are easy going, my daughter is 13 and a complete drama queen, LOL, I love her though.

  • My boy has been a lot of fun and seemingly easier than the girls that my friends have, but he is also very high-spirited. My daughter is due on Halloween, so we shall see!

  • I would have to say boys but then again i have all boys and a slew of gray hairs from them so i may not be the best judge.

  • My boy has been easier than my girl...but mom and my mother in law both say their boy was/is the hardest child they had to raise =o)
    My mom has 5 girls and 1 boy and my Mom in law has 1 boy and 1 girl (she's my husbands step mom so she didn't get to raise him cause he lived with his mom)

  • I've raised/raising 4 boys. My sister has girls.

     I am glad I had all boys. I've said it before, my nieces have been practicing PMS since they were toddlers and now that they are teenagers, they have it perfected.

     So my answer on which is easier?? Boys!!
