Easier to raise?

I have twin 11 yr old "step"-daughters (whom I raise & have since they were 6 with my husband). I also have a 3 yr old son. We are expecting our 4th child in 6 weeks, (chose not to find out the sex). was just asking the age old question... who is easier?
Girls or Boys?

  • I only have girls, but I've spent a lot of time caring for my little brothers-in-law. I'd have to say boys are easier - girls are too high maintenance!!

  • I have to say in my opinion my son is busy all the time but he is the easier child, only for the fact that god love them my girls are so dramatic lol! So I am hoping for a boy this time lol I also dont want my son to have a brother to beat up on instead of his siters lol

  • having 2of each i would say girls are easier when young harder when teens and after boys are harder wen young,young boys get into more mischeif and girls are more emotional later on

  • Girls are easy when they're little, but not so much come the tween years and beyond! Boys are tough when they're little, but (if raised right) become responsible and helpful when they're older! :o)

    I have boys...which is what I wanted! :o)
