  • I had two boys, 8 years apart, so it was almost like having two "only" children. One was easy, one was hard. One, I could say do this or don't do that and he would always mind me, never a problem-even during the teenage years. Two was a terror from the time he was born till he was grown-then he had a baby girl and he straightened out his life and is a great dad-a single custody dad for part of the time. She is ten now, a delightful child. Sometimes my son has said that if she didn't look so much like him he might wonder if she was his, because she is so good. lol.

  • Only one so far and it is a girl and I am telling you that she may be it for us. She is a piece of work and super intelligent.

  • No idea. I have boys. I've heard that boys are more challenging when they are little and girls are more challenging once they get to be around puberty age. Honestly, I think it depends on the kid though.

  • I had two girls and one boy. They were all pretty easy to raise and good kids. I don't think it is possible to generalize ,based on the sex of the child. They are all dfferent and doesn't matter if they are boys or girls. That is too easy to decide boys are easier or girls are easier....

  • I only have a girl and she's not easy at all. I'm going to say that I dont' think either of them are easy. Both of them have their own sets of issues and difficulties that make raising them not easy at times.
