I want to know if it's easier to raise boys or girls. Or is it about the same. I think it's about the same, but some feel that one is easier than the other. What do you think?

I think it depends on each individual child, but my wife and I have noticed some differences: our daughter was easier to potty train than our boys. Our sons seem a little more laid back than our daughter. The boys seems to follow the rules better -- our daughter has a mind of her own! So far for us, there haven't been too many differences -- although our kids are still pretty young.

I think that depends on the individual. For myself, I have 2 boys and one girl and one on the way. I am leaning more toward another boy since my girl is such a handful! She is overly dramatic and very spoiled by everyone since she is the first girl in 12 years. In general, I think it would most likely be about the same, but each individual has their own opinion. I found it easier to teach my oldest son than it was to teach my daughter but that also could be because my son was the only child at the time. You have to take into consideration all the surrounding conditions. Regardless, we love our children all the same right?!

I have raised both boys and girls. My boys were older than the girls. My girls were very dramatic. the boys were calmer most of the time. They recovered their better dispositions quicker too. I also raised 2 grandchildren a boy and girl. The girl is a regular drama Queen. Now that I think about it my oldest daughter is still a drama queen. just in a differnt way. Iwould say boys are easier to raise they don't have monthlie harmon imbalance.
