  • I have 3 girls and 1 boy. So far I dont think either is easier! My girls are different from each other and my son can be way more sensitive then all the girls lol I just think each kid in general has their own challenges :)

  • I don't think it's a gender thing. I think it's a personality thing and that isn't going to be dictated by X and Y chromosomes. ;)

    I have one of each and I'd say that over all, at 8 and 6, they both have their easy traits and they both have their difficult traits. It's not linked to gender at all - it's linked to who they are.

  • From what I've witnessed from families with both gender, boys seem easier. I only have a son myself, so I don't know from experience.

  • I have boys...which is what I wanted, and I think they're easier!! I cannot stand whining and screeching...which is all i ever hear from the girl neighbors! LOL I think boys are harder when they're young, but they get easier as they get older. Girls on the other hand are easier when they're young, but watch out for those tween/teen years!!

  • Boys...I have 4 girls and 2 boys.....girls are either whiney or giggly or have all the drama, boys just fart, burp and are phyisical

  • My sons have been more difficult younger children. My oldest is nearly 13 and he is much easier to deal with now that I can have an actual conversation with him. My youngest is just going to be an argumentative person for the rest of his life.

    DD was an angel until about age 9. She's 10 now and it can be really ugly at times. I am not looking forward to the teen years with her.

  • I can't give a good answer, cause all I've got are girls! I'd say they all have their difficulties though. Girls are drama filled, while boys are rough and tumble (just in general).

  • I have 2 girls so I hope girls!! My mom had both and she said girls were easier

    Answer by Ashlynnsmommy07 at 9:52 PM on Aug. 4, 2010

  • I have 2 of each. So far neither are easier. They each have their great things about them, and they both have their things that make things difficult. Girls tend to be drama queens, while boys tend to be rough and tumble. Both give you beautiful smiles, laughs that make your stomach hurt, and a heart full to the brim.
