  • I don't have both, but I def have to say boys are more relaxed and less whiney! More rough though!

  • I have an almost 3 year old boy - NOT easy.. not yet, not one bit.. although I have a 10 year old niece who we are very close to which is a constant reminder why I was given a boy :) she's already moody and snippy and hormonal and I remember those feelings like they were yesterday... ugh.. nope boys are harder at first I have heard and girls are harder later - but I will take the harder at first.. my son had all day colic for 6 months and didn't stop crying after that til he was 18 months and finally after dieticians and research and food allergies and lactose issues, he finally at 2 could have a poop on his own - although still the whiniest child all day, MUCH better that the start we had :)

  • I think it depends on the individual and the age. I have a boy and two girls, so far the boy has been by far the tougher one. However, I don't think it's necessarily because he's a boy- we just have more to deal with with him because he has some sensory issues and some learning disabilities now that he is school aged. He is also a lot more intense and 'in your face' than the girls are, but that could be a personality thing and not because he's a boy. Everyone tells me that boys are harder as kids and girls are harder as tweens/teens... we're not there yet so that might change my opinion!
