Do you think that boys or girls are easier to parent and why?
My mom always says that girls are easier because although they are dramatic as teens (although it seems like a lot of boys are now too) they are more willing to talk to you (even if they are yelling) so if you pay attention you at least have a clue what is going on. She says that isn't the case with boys.
I only have a girl so far so I don't know. Based on my nieces and nephews I would say girls.
Neither! I have two of each and each one had their hard and easy points and still go through those lil loop-de-loops of hard/easy rollercoasters. My youngest (a girl) is my easiest one because she doesn't rely on anything to entertain herself if her siblings arent around but she is really smart and at 3 is starting to memorized letters (I'm sure someone will say their kid did it at 2 or something but it's awesome to me anyways). My oldest is a boy and I think he is only hard to handle because he is moving into those pre teen years and has attitude issues anyways, otherwise he was a great kid when he was younger, even climbing on counters and tryin to break things.
It really just depends on the child and has nothing to do with gender. I have 2 girls and one boy. My girls are super emotional about things but my son is sensitive about other things. They're all different
I've never raised girls. I wouldn't know.
I've got one of each.. My son to me is the easiest to raise. He is calm, steadfast, ingenious, level headed, a peace maker.. He hates fights, loves to study, and never wants to get married. His few friends call him the spoiler of the bunch because he won't let them do anything dangerous or illegal. My daughter..oh boy.. She takes after me. She tries dangerous stunts, fearless, hot tempered.. Quick to start a fight.. Even quicker to end one.. Falls in love constantly.. Falls out of love just as easily.. Snaps back.. Rolls her eyes.. Constantly being disciplined..use to sneak out until I grounded her for six months straight for that bs.. But for all that pent up energy, she hurts for he underdog, hates bullies, loves God and church, wants to marry a Christian boy someday, loves animals, wants to save every child and very animal from abuse..has no enemies..
My son is easy,, logical, level, loves silence, obscurity, peace.. My daughter is his opposite except on the love part.. And her love for others shines more fiercely than his does.
So while I may find one easier, I certainly do not have a favorite.. In fact, if I ever had another child, IDE want a girl!
