Sorry, My son asked me this question Last night, I have 2 boys I never had girls, and my Husband has 2 girls he never had any boy's. I always said God blessed me by not having Girls because of what I went threw with my childhood and how protective and scared I would be. What do you Think? Do you have boys and girls or just one or the other?

I think that they are equally difficult to raise. It is really difficult to say, but; I know that it may seem extremely/excrutiatingly hard to understand them at times; but hopefully you won't get on as a dysfunctional family. Just try your best and your kids will become accustomed and hopefully behave themselves more often.

well growing up boys r hyper where as girls r more passive! but when they get older girls have more attitude and u have to always protect them where as boys they do need to be protected just not as much, but boys don't have as much attitude! i have 2 boys and 1 girl they're still lil but i know from experience, my mom had a harder time with her girls then her son! so far as babies my daughter isnt as hyper but she is more sensitive!

Thinking about the question and all that goes into raising boys and girls, I think I can definitively say: dogs. I think each have their "good" points and their "bad" points. I have daughters and I can think of times when I'm glad to have girls instead of boys, but then there are times when I wish I had boys. I suppose, both are true blessings.

I have one of each, and I am no expert. Both of mine were easy, basically. I feel like my son was more vulnerable, and also more withdrawn or less communicative. How difficult or easy raising children is comes at least in part from who your partner is in this effort.

I'm sorry but I'm confused why some are answering dogs. I don't see any "dogs" in the topic starter's question. For the topic, I am not yet a parent. I will base my answer as the only son in my family with 2 sisters both older and younger. Both gender have ups and downs so both are not easy. But from experience, I found out that we guys are easier to raise than ladies. Main reason is safety. As the only son I'm always told by my parents to take good care of my sisters and to watch them as long as I can. Of course guys need guidance too but not as much as ladies especially when we are talking about safety.

I have one of each. I'm glad to have a boy and a girl. However, my daughter whines, a lot! It may be due to her PDD-NOS, but most people I talk to, say their daughters whine as well. Often girls can be very finicky. I wonder what the teen years will bring!

I have 3 boys and 1 girl. My daughter is only 7 but sometimes I swear she is already a teenager. Just her whole attitude and how moody she gets. My boys are fairly easy going though. I suppose they all have their moments though. It's hard to say which is easier, maybe because mine are still young. There ages are nearly 2 up to 11 years old. Kids are almost the same at this age with how they act and what they like to do. Maybe I will have a different answer when they are in their teens.
