  • In my case, boy's!

  • Honestly - it depends on the child. My daughter isn't a drama queen, even at 16 so she's been easy. I've had more drama with one of my older sons in the past year than I ever did with my daughter. And my younger son has been really easy also.

  • I only have 2 boys, but from what I've been told, boys are harder when their babies/toddlers because they're more active and less organized and girls become harder during the pre-teen/teen years. We women are a bit more complicated than men.

  • I babysitted and I say girls because the boys I babysat were little demons

  • In my home, my sons are easier than my daughter, but DD is autistic. I'm assuming it's the special needs that makes her harder.

  • In my home? My son was the easy one-

  • My daughter was the easiest when she was 6 and 2 like my boys now, but shes 9 now...and the last couple years have been rough with her already. So, I'd say my girl was easiest as a baby/toddler...but looks like my boys will be easier in the long run. I'll have to wait and see.

  • Neither, they both have their challenges. Girls are more whiny and cry more often
    but boys are very rough and have terrible attitudes. Well in my experience, this has
    been the case. As my girls get older though, I find that they are a bit harder to deal
    with because they like to argue about everything. And I do mean everything.
    My son however, has a very bad temper and he gets pissed really easy. I am working
    on his anger management and it's coming along really well.

  • I think it depends on the child, you just never know what kind of personality you are going to get with any given child
