Hey there my friends, I have this question now that I have one of each. I have an almost 2 year old son and he is a handfull, while my 4 month old daughter is already the most easy going calm tempered baby. So my question is which gender is easier to raise in your own opinion?

I only have one son, he's approaching the wonderful age of 2, and dang it's getting hard. I've been told that boys are harder to raise when they are young, but fairly easy compared to girls as teenagers.

Somehow, girls tend to be more obideint and less curious about rule breaking.

I think a boy might be? I have a daughter and we have been through alot with her from 14 years on. She now at 23 is starting to be responsible. But i think it would be different with every child.

Raising kids of both genders in easy as the kids are so cute you won't even know when they are all grown up. I have no kids but I am saying this as I have seen my niece and nephews getting older.

I also have one of each and a boy is much easier than a girl. Because everything from bathing and cleaning to giving them your undivided attention, a girl demands much more than a boy. A boy honestly is naughty and does very crazy things, but he can play with or without friends, as oppose to a girl who needs your attention 110% of the time.

I only have a little boy now and he's a handful. He's super hyper, with a strong stubborn streak, loves to whine and throw tantrum and refuses to be potty trained!! LOL!! So, I'm having a hard time. I've heard girls are easier.

I've often heard that boys are easier in general. My two have switched roles as my eldest was a breeze as a baby but has turned into a bit of a wild child since he started school. The little one was very picky as a baby but tends to respond to direction a lot easier as he gets older. I can only hope that he keeps it up! I have friends who have girls that are little prima donnas about getting dirty or having their favorite toys. The girls at day care tend to pickier and more demanding than the boys, although a lot of that depends on the parenting and on the day. LOL

I have a 7 year old and an 8 month old boy, The girl was a pleasure, no dramas etc... and the boy, he is just an absolute angel. So I have been pretty ;ucky to have 2 great kids.

Well i say enjoy it while it lasts that way cause boys are easier and you will find that out within i would say the next 12 months or so. Hold on and maybe just maybe yours will be different so lots of luck.

I have the opposite as you. I have a 5 yr old son and a 3 yr old daughter and my son is so much easier. My son is hyper and rotten to the core, but he will do stuff in front of me and all. LOL MY daughter is whiney and SOOO dramatic and sneaky! :)
