  • Parenting is a full time job no matter the sex of one's children. My husband and I had two boys and one girl, and we enjoyed and still enjoy all three of them, and they have all turned out to be outstanding adults, praise be unto God.

  • I think it depends on the age. As a toddler, my daughter was easier than my son is now (at 3 1/2). I think the age my daughter is now (11) is going to be easier with my son than her.

  • I dont know about anyone else. But my 12yr and 6yr girls are way easier than my 9yr son. He may make it to see being a teen.

  • In the long run boys. They get in trouble and are mad at you for about five minutes. While girls on the other hand will proceed to tell you that you just don't understand and pout, slam doors, give you the evil eye for months on end. Over the smallest things. Yes boys can be a handful, but that's it they are boys. They play hard. They are rambunctious. They don't like to sit still but they can learn that there times when they need to as long as later they can let off steam.

  • One boy...so much easier than a girl. Multiple girls way easier than more than one boy. My first son was a dream compared to my two younger DD's BUT my DD's are a dream compared to my two youngest sons. Make any sense. I think there is one boy...then there are brothers...it is a big difference.
