This question came up in another thread, and I have heard that girls are harder to raise. But my boys were so difficult as teens.

I have many friends who have boys and girls and have said boys are harder to raise. I only have 1 girl so I don't know.

Mothers of just girls will say girls
Mothers of just boys will say boys
Mothers of a " mixed brood" will pick the most strong willed child and go with the gender of that child.

 My son is a easy going person like me, he goes with the flow so there's no big issues there. My daughter, she is a hand-full, she's like her dad, loud, in command, the center of attention and has a "my way or the highway" attitude. Plus she's a toddler so it can be quite frustrating, but fun too.

All three of mine are fantastic and infuriating at times. Depends on the day and the stage they are in. I will say as babies my oldest seemed easiest because she was the only one, as toddlers my middle was easiest and my littlest (boy) was hardest. That might change as they age.

I only have boys, so I can't compare the two.
But all of my friends with both boys and girls, all say girls are harder.

As my mom puts it "both. Boys are stupid and girls are mean."

So far in my 28 years, I've found she's dead on, lol!

Idk, I have two girls.

I don't think anyone can say for sure.

It's hard especially because it's such a perspective thing. That's like asking how hard being a parent is, period.

I have a 19 year old daughter and 2 boys who are 15 and 7. All of my kids are great kids... but...

Based on my own experience, boys are harder.
