Are boys easier to raise than girls? I have found that boys are alot more hard work than girls as they are harder to potty train and harder to get them to stay in bed.What do you think?

[i]My sister's children are girls and I have experienced taking care of them like their own mother should. I say girls are pretty easier to raise maybe because I am a girl myself and I know what applies to those girls. Also, I find it fun to dress up little girls, fix their hair and even apply kiddie make-up . Well, I have a 6-month old son now and raising him is also fun as he is the sweetest baby ever (he loves to kiss and hug me) but he tends to be too difficult to handle, always rolling on the bed, always jumping, moving around, my! he fell from the bed twice already! Good thing my bed (a thick mattress) is just about 8 inches from the floor! Also, there are times I find it somewhat hard to apply some of the things that I know would pacify little girls or would make them happy. I guess I still have many things to learn huh![/i]

I too have a baby boy. Now he is 5 months and 3 weeks. Fell from the bed twice like yours. He is rolling and kicking my elder three year old son who is sleeping. While responding to mylot discussions, my baby kicks the laptop and tries hard to do naughty things. Boys are really hard and mothers with boys need extra physical strength to bring them up until about 4 years of age.

Is that your son on your avatar? He's cute Guess he loves to "work" with Mommy as well huh? My son loves to "help" me type on the keyboard without realizing that he's not really typing but rather smashing the keyboard Yeah, I think I need more energy everyday, Nicholas is not just heavy huh, he's also too strong for a 6-month old!

Kids are easier to raise when they're still young,where we can still control them,may it be girl or a boy.From toodlers they only wants to play and listens to our stories.That is the time when they starts to explore things around them,keep asking questions from what they sees.But as they grow older and reach on their pre teen,that is where they changes interests and want's to explore things by themselves. And this is the most difficult time on raising them.Parents should engaged with kids interests,parents should always be aware of their kids everyday activities. One thing i learned from my teen kids is,to be more on a friend relationship with them rather than be a parent.This is one easy way to adopt with their new stage of growing up.And this is the time where parents are the one listening to their kids and not demanding or commanding them what to do.Thru listening we can figure out how to deal with their feelings,we can't say who's harder to train up,it's how we build a relationship between our kids.

Boys are harder to raise. Mothers need too much physical strength to bring them up. I do not have a girl but while comparing with my friends kids, I think boys are harder to be raised. Boys throw more tantrums too!

i wouldn't know that. since i only have one little boy. he's only 1 yr and 9 months old only. i think it will depends on the child's character. i might think that girls will be much easier since i think my little boy is quite hard to raise, beside i still want to have another baby and i hope it will be a girl.

im not sure about it.my baby is just 3 months old but i've noticed that she's easy to catch instruction and gestures. they sadi girls are easy to train than boys, but still i believe it depends on how the parents mold them...

I believe that depends on the parent. Me being a boy I would say that growing up I wasnt all too hard to raise but whenever there was disputes with my brothers we would dish it out right then and there and we would keep at it till someone gave up. As with girls I would think they would be harder to raise once they become curious about boys since there is a lot to talk about there and also when they want to use things like makeup because that looks like hard work to do. So based off of some facts, boys might be harder to raise than girls since girls mature faster than boys do. But again this isnt always the fact and it can be the other way around.
