    3 girls and 1 boy for me. Although my son presented his own unique issues, and still does! My girls were much more emotional and mentally challenging, and still are! But this grand parenting things is see the scores get even.

    They both have their challenges but I wouldn't say one is easier than the other.

    I don't have kids yet, but I took care of my nephews for three months... and have also spent substantial time with a couple who have both a boy (6) and a girl (2) I think for me, I'm going to say boy.

    1. Because they don't emotionalize EVERYTHING. Girls tend to skulk around, and boys just deal with it, and get over it, and move on. (depends, but generally)

    2. I'm just more into boy stuff, so it's easier for me to relate to them.

    3. I know what a handful I was as I was after a certain age, and I am not looking forward to that.

    That being said however, while there are particular gender differences to be accounted for... I think it really just depends on the personality of the child, and how the parent goes about disciplining them, and setting boundaries from an early age.

    But, again, I don't have kiddos yet, so my opinion may change.
