Are boys whinier than girls??????

I have been around alot of boys lately and seems like every one of them have been whining or throwing fits. I know all kids and little girls do it too but do most boys? I have a 5 year old daughter and yes she cried but was never whiny or throwed tantrums. I would love to have a boy and was wondering if it is more of a boy thing!

  • NO! Not from what I've experienced.

  • They can be drama queens once in awhile for sure but I don't believe they are worse than girls. My boys aren't at least.

  • My son is... I think more than even what I've come across - that is actually our biggest obstacle we have with him - he is 3-1/2 and getting better but... he's still pretty whiny

  • Depends on the kids. My boys are not whiny, but my brother's boys are super whiny.

  • My daughter is the whiner in my house. Now we laugh and tell her "keep practicing! You are going to get a college scholarship for whining!" She ends up smiling. My boys never whine.

  • I think there are a lot of factors the determine who is whiner. It is mostly the person, not the gender.

  • Not from what I have experienced ... girls (particularly when they hit the pre-teen and teen years) are the whiniest beings on the face of the planet!
