Mom's of boys AND girls...who's easier to potty train?

I've heard all along that boys are easier, but my family has always been the opposite.  While neither of my twins are easy to train, by any means, DS seems to be picking it up (he's been telling us when he has to poop and actually pooping on the potty), but DD doesn't even seem interested...GRRRRR.

All my kids were different.  My oldest ds was next to near impossible, my 2 nd oldest dd was potty trained in less than a week.  My youngest ds  took about a month to be fully potty trained and my youngest dd took a matter of 2 weeks.

I'm in the process of potty training my son. So far I'd say he's a little harder because he wants to take his potty chair apart and doesn't sit still very long. My daughter was more calm and sat quietly until she peed.

Just depends on the child. I potty trained three youngins, one boy and two girls. One of the girls was the hardest and the other girl was the easiest.

My dd was easier. She was fully trained a little after her third birthday. She would wake up dry. We had extra pull ups of hers that we used on DS. DS is almost 4 and still has accidents.

My son used the potty twice last night!  It really wasn't a hastle at all, he just came and told me he needed to go...he is 22 months old.

 I have one boy and two girls and each was different.  My son was very easy to train and my middle daughter basically trained herself lol and my youngest daughter was awful to train! I didn't think she'd ever use the potty

I personally think that my son was easier to train than my daughter. And my son potty trained faster as well. And then teaching him to pee standing up was even easier.
