Thank god I don't have boys. I want all girls. I have a dd. I babysit a boy currently and have watched mannnnny in my life. Here are my reasons (obviously I know every child is different but this is how I feel for the most part) 1- they are really rough . They aren't afraid of anything , they like tackling, they like body slamming , they like jumping off things etc etc. 2- In my experience they take longer to learn. This isn't a basic intelligence thing.... It's needing to be told over and over after suffering the same consequences . 3- ON AVERAGE they take wayyyyy longer to potty train and have less urge to please you.
Yes girls are more emotional and whinny . But my dd is NOT clingy and is very eager to please which is the same with the other girls I've watched . They adore being "helpers" , all the boys don't listen . They won't clean up the toys and will drag their feet with any task EVEN though they have nooooooooo problem running 10 thousand freaking miles an hour going no where in circles doing nothing to drive you crazy . I want all girls fingers crossed .
What's your Take on this ? Any truth in it in your experience? .... And yes yes we know we all love children regardless of gender I got that.
