I have 3 girls and 1 boy ( the 2 younger girls are mine and the older boy and girl are step) Boys tend to get in a stage at one time where they cry a lot and things and yes my girls are a handfull for sure. But they are so caring and lovable but can definately get on my nerves. But no matter what gender you will have your ups and downs.

I have 3 daughters no sons. It seems like they do require a lot of time compared to my friends or cousins sons.

This is responding to Heidi's post..... I dont mean to be rude but sounds like your very ignorant in regards to girls and how they are. They are not rude nor do they have a attitude of im better than you. If they do, blame the parents not the child,. That kind of attitude is learned !!!! Girls are not born this way. Im in shock at your comment. I have one daughter that is 4 and she is very smart and sweet, likes to share and is very outgoing. All kids can be brats and act out of line, not just girls. I am the youngest of 4 boys and 1 sister. We all have kids of our own and I can tell you that Girls learn faster, develope faster than boys do. They are much more independant as well. Thats not to say that boys are not but for you to make it sound like girls are horrible to deal with is simply stupid on your part. Sorry. Just my opinion., You cant tell me your boys never act out of line or rude with others, if so then you should recieve an award for your parenting skills. Kids are the way they are because of the direction they recieve from the parents,. Its that simple.

I have 2 daughters. 6yrs apart. 2 different developmental stages as, unfortunately, the oldest (11.5yrs) and I went through an unnecessary struggle during labour. She ended up with mild brain damage.

Both girls are night and day and I am in the middle. (Oldiest more tomboyish, youngest more girlish and me). They were both surprise as boys tend to be family stronghold on my husband's side. (they r the first girls in over 40yrs). They are fun, interesting, confusing, more snuggly, more dramatic, and a joy. GIRLS RULE IN THIS HOUSE.

I have one princess an she is awsone, no trouble at all, but really anything she needs her older brother (whos 3) gets it for her, keeps her out of things she not suppost to have, an tells me when she hungry or when she wants a nap. He's good brother, an she is just so easy. No more time consuming then then he is, an she is always happy. ^_^

I have 2 boys and a girl. My daughter is the youngest. And I do have to say that I never hoped that I'd have a daughter. Not because they are "whiney and rude" but because I also had 2 older brothers and I'm a tomboy myself. I don't know how to be girly. I don't know what to do with girls. It scared me. But there she is. And, just like with the boys, you learn as you go. All 3 of my kids are awesome. They all can be sweet and helpful just as much as they can be irritating and rude. Anyway, my daughter is a tomboy through and through, just like her mom. The only girly thing she likes is her baby dolls. I wouldn't change anything about my family. I love them all completely.

I have a ten-year-old daughter, and it is happening in a period of many anxiety brings over of the physical changes, for that it waits in her future, plaintiff is putting the puberty much more, with changes of humor and very sensitively to everything what I say or do. She is very anxious and wants to speak about it all the time and takes offence if I do not give her the due attention. She is so sweet and lovely sometimes she exhausts me. I know this is new for me but I have a eight-year-old boy and he start to ask questions and she does not like it, but she speak about it all the time, so he is curios.

In the long run it really doesn't matter whether you have boys or girls, as long as they are happy and healthy. I am just thankful to have all boys. I never wanted to have daughters, but if I did I would love her as much as I love my sons...whether she is biologically mine or a stepdaughter. She would be treated equally! ;)

It doesn;t matter ALL children can be bossy, whinny and rude at some point. I agree with some of the above posts "it is all how you raise your children". My girls have there moments and I make sure they know there behaviour is inappropriate. It defenately doesn't mean I wish I had boys instead. In my above post I wasn't meaning I wish I didn't have boys, just that I am happy with my healthy girls and enjoy my girly times with them. My girls do many "boy" activities so it is like I have a bit of both!

I have 2 daughters and they both have such different personalities, are you facing that with your daughter? I do say that they are like their boy cousins at time and they are girly girls at others. Girls are in a class all to themselves I think. But I also think it is all about how you raise them to be. If you aren't leading by example then you end up with what you get. But I will say that if you want a girl who is not going to be so bossy or rude as others have posted, you have to teach them at a young age that acting like that is just not acceptable. I wish you luck with your daughters.

I have a daughter and 2 sons. My daughter can be more demanding at times and she is more stroppy than the boys. My daughter will do all activities the same as the boys but does like to be a girlie girl too. I love all my children boys or girls.

No need to feel offended because its " my opinion" . Apparently you feel I am not entitled to that. I also wrote "usually" I didn't say "all". I am glad that you are happy with your daughters and so you should be, as I am happy to be blessed with boys. And like you said I need to have a daughter to understand first hand, just like you need to have a son to understand. Its like comparing apples to oranges. You can have your opinion and I can have mine. I didn't post to start something, just stating my opinion. Nothing more nothing less. If you don't like my opinion then there is nothing I can do to change your mind, but that is how I feel.
Enjoy your girls each day as I enjoy having my boys each day!

i have to say Heidi, i am more then a little offended by your post. i am the mother of three wonderful little girls, and yes on occassion they can be rude, whiny and a little bossy just like all of thier friends. boys and girls. i can't believe that you are willing to rite of an entire gender! my girls play in the dirt, ride bikes and work in the garage with daddy, they are completely capable of keeping themselves busy, and i can honestly say that i thank God every day for blessing me with three beautiful, healthy CHLIDREN regardless of the gender. it doesn't matter how long you have been in childcare, to understand 1st hand what the mother of a daughter goes through, you need to have a daughter.

Thankfully I am lucky not to have any daughters. I have 3 sons, 2 bio and one step. As a child I never wanted a daughter. Girls usually have this " I am better then you" kind of attitude. They are FAR to whiny and needy. I have been doing Child Care for 9 years now, so I know first hand what parents of daughters go through. I wouldn't trade any of my boys in for anything. I do have neices that I do love dearly, but thankful none of them are my daughters. Boys are busy, and girls tend to be bossy and rude. Maybe its just this generation I don't know, but never in a million years would I want to raise a little girl.
