    I think girls are definitely harder to raise – they certainly are harder to potty train!

  2. Heather says:

    I have three boys and one girl. I have heard that boys are harder as young kids and girls are harder as teenagers. From my own childhood I agree with that assessment, atleast so far! I’ll let you know for sure when they’re all grown and out of the houes :-)

    Girls I have two girls and they both are pre teen and they have up and down emotions all the time. Crying and happy. Then attitude. Love them but harder to raise always worrying that someone will hurt their feelings. Girls are emotional and that can drain you as a mother.

    girls are harder…dealing with emotions and hormones…eek. my son was def easier

  5. Terri Br says:

    I agree with Heather. Boys are harder when they’re little, and girls are harder when they’re teenagers.

  6. Kim says:

    I think boys are harder…at least in my case. My boy has TONS of energy. He is very stubborn and strong-willed. He was also very difficult to potty train. We had all the tools: books, DVDs, various potty chairs, pull-ups, etc., but he refused to go…until he wanted to. But then again, my girl is only 3.5 months old so I can’t say whether or not she will be easy or difficult to raise.

  7. Sarah Hirsch says:

    when they are young…boys. as they get a little older, girls!
    Because boys can be a little wilder ss toddlers, but once girls get into all the drama that they do…look out.

  8. Jennifer says:

    I think girls are much harder…they are filled with emotions!!

  9. Carol says:

    I have 2 of each, and without question, girls are more difficult to raise.

  10. Jill L says:

    With out a doubt, girls. I have one boy and two girls. My son is sooooo easy compared to my girls.

  11. April says:

    I think girls are harder to raise…more emotions!

  12. Marlena C says:

    I think boys are harder when their a baby but ghirls are harder when then become a teenager.

  13. Shannon says:

    Girls, they are very picky.

  14. Carol G says:

    I only had girls, but have grandsons. Can’t see much difference, although the problems are a little different at different ages, probably owing to different hormonal changes and some to peer pressure at different times.

  15. So far my son has been a breeze, but then again he only just started walking! My daughter has been harder, because she is so high mantinence!

  16. Lentil says:

    While I think some of it may vary with the personality of the parent, as a rule, boys are more exhausting while they’re young, girls are more demanding when they get older.

  17. sheri says:

    Girls for sure…sooooo many emotions and moods! My boy is very much by the book, while my girl wants to break every rule in the book!

  18. Chrysa says:

    In the long run, I would say girls, but I think little boys are harder than little girls.

  19. Lisa G. says:

    I have 1 teen daughter and 2 school age sons and for me boys are harder to raise. They play rough and get hurt more often, in my experience they are more emotional and get angry easier, they tend to be louder when they talk. It’s also harder to get my boys to be affectionate and talk openly.

    Even though I have 5 boys (pregnant with my 6th & unknown child) I think it\\\’s harder to raise girls.

  21. Marie N says:

    I had two boys and I sincerely believe it was much easier raising them than it would have been if they had been girls. Especially during puberty I imagine that are added concerns with girls when it comes to sexual activity. Given the statistics that 1 in 4 girls is sexually abused in her life by someone she knows is something that would make having girls an added responsibility. I know that it has been a burden for my sister who had two girls and is ever vigilant. My responsibility on the other hand was to make sure my sons were raised knowing that in all situations they had to respect and cherish the opposite sex if when they didn’t always act like they deserved it. That knowledge has served them well and now that my oldest son is the father of a girl he has the responsibility of not protecting her but teaching her to protect herself in a world that demeans women at every turn.

  22. amy delong says:

    I think boys are harder when they are younger!!

  23. Steve says:

    I have a boy who’s 2, and a 2 month newborn girl. Even though I am a new parent I can already tell that my girl is going to be harder to raise – she does everything so “girly”. She feeds slow, she cries more, she wants to be carried more.

  24. Jenny S. says:

    Definitely boys! I can never get them to sit still for just one minute!

  25. Rosey says:

    I have three boys and one girl, and while I love my little woman dearly, I def. say girls! She’s emotional and dramatic and the boys are way more even-keeled.

  26. reeva says:

    much easier to raise boys in this society

  27. Donna K says:

    Girls. They are more emotional.
