i have 5 children total. 3 boys and 2 girls. For me , my boys were the easiest to raise. My oldest daughter who is now 25 was a pain in the butt . Not so much the youngest girl...maybe because she is the last child she is easier. Everytime I talk to someone else I hear that boys are much more difficult for them. What is harder for you? Sons or daughters?

I have to say, it is easier to bring up sons. The girls do get more frustrated in their teens than boys. I have brought up one girl, now 20 and living by her self. We had a lot of conflicts in her teens. My son 17 with ADHD still live home, and I have no far so many conflicts with him as I had with my daughter. I also feels it is easier to talk to sons than daughters. Sons listened more to what you say, than daughters who like to think they know best. But I think I did a god job, we have the best relationship today and talk about stuff. She ask me for advice and more than often do take up on them. But, bringing up children should not be easy, it should be a challange for us in order to develop and grow as parents.

sons are harder to bring up, I can bring up 10 girl babies at a time without any pain but not one male kid. Boy babies cannot grow without troubling.
