I have 2 of each. My girls were much easier when they were young. They seemed to be more self-entertaining. Teen years were tough though. My boys, at a young age, were 200% energy & constantly on the go. Definitely more destructive. And, they needed more structure & repeated instruction. Their teen years have been easier in many ways. They don't seem to desire as much as my girls did...ie...expensive brand clothing, shoes, etc. Buy them jeans, t-shirts & sneakers, they're happy. But, their teen years were definitely more awkward in respect to girls and such.
For those of you with both, boys and girls...what differences do/did you see in yours?

"I only have a little boy and he is SO mean!"
Children do as they see, not as their told. If there is no understanding, compassion & good, patient disciplinary skills in the home, you will have a mean child. I just feel sorry for any child who's parents can all them mean. Even if my DD was hard to deal with I'd never call her mean to someone.
To the OP, you nailed it. Boys are harder than girls when they are younger, but girls seem to be more difficult teens. Very true...
