whats easier girls or boys?

I agree with Margaret. I have 2 boys and 2 girls, ranging from 18-7. They have each had their trying times and easy times. And it wasn't based on age or sex. What my boys did at five differed from my girls at 5. There were even differences between what the each boy and each girl did at the same ages. That may change as they are getting older, too.

My son is 4 and my daughter 18 months. My son has been way easier to raise so far. My daughter is demanding and needy, while my son has always been laid-back and kind of a loner. On the other hand, my daughter tries very hard to be helpful and tidy and my son won't!

I think that it depends on the child and how you raise them. My daughter was so laid back, but we as parents are pretty calm too. On the other hand I think girls become harder during their teenage years where boys become easier. But as little ones, I've noticed that boys are busier and more adventurous than girls. I'm scared to death of have a boy.

i have girls (7 & 4 years old) and a boy (2 years old). to me, the girls much more easier (from my experience with my child), girls more listened to what i've said, and i don't need too much energy when play with girls. with boys, i need extra energy.cause boys often jump and run here and there, boys determine not to listened to advice just like that. girls more concentration than boys, so it would be easier and faster to teach girls. but that doesn't mean girls more smart than boys. smart or not is depends on the child, not gender.
well, after all, girls or boys, it's depends on the child personality, neighborhood.
so, i guess girls more easier.............. :)

I have two daughters, ages 21 and 6. I've got several friends who have boys. I really don't think one sex is easier to raise over the other. It's true boys and girls have totally different issues and problems growing up. But one set of problems isn't easier than the other, just different.
I honestly believe that boys are easier than girls. I have a boy and although I don not have a girl, all of my friends have them, it just seems that behaviorally boys are easier than girls.. I have asked my friends who have boys and girls which they think is easier and usually the answer is boys... LOl, they tend to be more layed back than girls are. Hope this helps a lil bit. :-)

I have three boys and two girls. My girls have been easier so far. I have been told girls are easier when they are younger and harder when they get older where as boys are harder when they are younger and easier when get older.

i have an 8 year old girl, 5 year old and an 11 month old boy - they both have their challenges - in very different ways. My boys are more affection and my girl is more emotional - dramatic, but, loving. Both are very different to raise but i couldn't tell you which was easier!!! Both are the same with different challenges if that makes sense!!!

In my experience my boy was much easier. He was clam and quiet. My oldest daughter I didn't think was going to live through puberty. My youngest daughter is the only one at home now but she is still high maintenance and a BIG drama queen.

Ok, so I have 4 children. 3 girls and 1 boy. My son is my third child and he is by far easier than the girls. Boys are more engery and physical, girls are more emotional, and talkative. ; ) He does not drain me nearly us much as my girls can at any age. My girls are 8, 5, and 9 months. My son is 3.

Althelia I wouldn't say any of them are easier. I come to feel that when raising a girl you see a reflection of yourself. It just seems like boys are easier because they do things that you might not do as a girl, so you find it acting normal and not a form of misbehaving or disobeying you. A girl will do things you would do, but remember you probably did it to your parents. I tell you this because I have two boys and a girl. My boys are 21 and 19. My girl is 8. Everyday I see myself just like I was when I was her age and I think its bad, but my mother constantly tells me she wouldn't have change my attitude for nothing in the world. I feel with girls we have to realize if we love ourselves and if not then raising a daughter would seem harder. Your children are a reflection of you.

I have a boy and two girls. In my family sex doesn't seem to matter. My oldest (a boy) and my youngest (a girl) are easy going and laid back but my middle child (a girl) has always been more easily upset- even before birth!

I have only one child, a boy. he is now 7 and he was an angel to raise. he was not hard at all. I raised him as a single, working, going to school mother. So, I did the best I could. I have been with my boyfriend for a little over 3 years now and he has been a great help. He taught my son to be more respectful and to not talk back to me. But he was a good child anyways. I do have a niece who is 6 and she is such a drama quees. And a real girly girl. She hates to get dirty. She is much more emotional than my son. So, I would have to say boys!
