  • Well I have 2 DD's and know boys. What is weird is I have 2 brothers no sisters. So it was hard for me to raise girls.

  • I have heard toddler boys are harder, but then teenager girls become harder. So I think it evens out.

  • I have 1 child, a 17 year old son, but I know that he has been much easier to raise than I was. I was a nightmare!

  • i just have her shes 3yrs old and shes AWESOME
    i used to work at a day care with babies and toddlers and it was harder for me to work with boys because they where more hyper girls would just sit down and play with dolls or kitchen lol

  • Well I only have 1 daughter and 3 sons. And since she is 10 going on 25 I think its easier to raise boys... They are not as smacky mouthed and puberty will be a breeze for them....

  • I had two boys and a girl, and I don't think there's any difference. Raising children, boys or girls, is an investment of everything that you have. Ours turned out well, and we are very proud of all of them. They have never caused us any trouble. They all have done well in life.

  • My son is 5 and my daughter is 3 and I think they both come with unique issues, but for me I think it is more their personalities then being male or female (though some of their personality certainly comes from that). My son is very much like me and we butt heads all the time, but my daughter is like her father and we get along pretty well and my DH has the opposite problem with them.

  • Speaking as a mother of two teenage girls, boys are easier because they don't get PMS.

  • Boys!! I have two biological sons and two stepsons. I have one daughter. Up until she hit 7 or so she was mommy's little girl, now there are days when I just want to slap her. She's 10 now, I've considered selling her to the circus :)
