  • I have 2 boys so I have nothing to compare it to but they were so easy to train. Just throw cheerios in the toilet and tell them to aim & shoot! Went through alot of cheerios, LOL

  • I don't have girls but my boys both trained within 2-3 days. I can't imagine it being much easier than that.

  • I have 4 boys of my own and work as a preschool teacher. It definitely depends on the indiviual child. But overall, in my experince, girls are quicker to train.

  • well right now i am potty training a girl. my only girl though. but i think its an individual thing. mine is doing great but its a challenge no matter what the challenge. my sil told me my one nephew was so much easier then the other. so it depends.

  • I have a boy and girl. I would have to say that little boys are easier. (Who wouldn't want to aim at something and pee all over it. lol) the girl on the other hand was scared of the potty and didn't want anything to do with it. I guess it just depends.
