In China,many family expectate to bring up a male kid rather than a female kid. Chinese trational customs consider that the male kid is the hope of their family,and when daught grow up,she will get married and leave her family,so they pay more attion to male kids when he was young. what about your country?I expect your answer.

As a mother, I prefer a daughter to a son. As you know, nowadays, most families have only one child. A daughter is usually closer to her parents even after she becomes a grow-up, and a girl is always more willing to share her work, her friend, her thinking with parents, a girl is more considerate and thoughtful to her parents, another important factor is it's easier for a mother to get well along with her daughter-in-law than with a daughter-in-law as that in many families. that's why I prefer to have a daughter.
