    That's really sweet Effie.

    My current "wants" are two boys and a girl, though of course I'd be happy with anything, and would consider adopting or fostering as well. I would like to experience raising at least one child of each sex though.

    I have one of each - girl then boy. Each has their own challenges. Girl babies are generally much easier and less demanding than boys but that all changes when they become teenagers.

    That's definitely not a given that simply comes with having a penis. It generally requires a role model!

    And girls these days are just as loud, noisy and mischievous. Though I haven't reached the teen years with my own son yet, just having grown up with all boys I can tell you that they are just as capable of showing emotions until/unless they have been under the influence of someone who has droned it into their heads that boys don't do this. Even this doesn't "take" with all boys exposed to.

    It seemed like when I had my son, everyone else having kids at the time got girls, thus he grew up with lots of "girl" friends and knowing how to enjoy playing with girls and act appropriately toward girls in ways that you don't often see with some little boys who've been socialized with mostly other boys (or a male role model as mentioned above).

    Not so much now but when a toddler-preschooler I witnessed my sweet, even-tempered, good natured little boy get absolutely run roughshod over (yes sometimes physically) by a number of agressive, selfish, seemingly emotionless...beyond tyrannical tantrums when they didn't get their way...little girls not to comment here.

    my mom had the exact opposit my bro was an angelic baby and horrible teenager(and adult he still hasn't grown up and he's 34) I on the other hand was a horrible baby and toddler and she didn't have a lot of problems with me as a teenager or at least compared to my bro. And she has yet to have to bail me out of jail lmao. My son was a good baby but my oldest daughter dear lord if I make it past these terrible twos we will be lucky and I'm scared to death the baby(also a girl) is going to be just as bad

    I think I was willed into being a girl. There was no boy's name ever selected.

    All this talk about boys being easier to raise. Parenting is hard no matter which sex it is, right? Maybe the difficulty comes from girls being encouraged to be emotional, expressive and more detail oriented. I'm guessing that's not heavily encouraged in raising boys. I wish it were though, because then we might have more openly expressive and emotional men.

    You're right. Although babies are born with definite personalities it's up to us as parents to teach and guide them into well-adjusted adulthood. It's easy to have a baby - it's the hardest job in the world to be a parent. I'll say it again, if you have fucked up kids then you've screwed up somewhere along the way. Enjoy the guilt trip!

    I agree. Girls, in my experience, always have some problem going on. They're very high maintenance. The dramas at school with other girls can be terrible. My son, on the other hand, just breezes through life. He's a pretty even tempered, sweet natured guy. But girls are so moody. We let my daughter sleep in on the weekends. Everyone is very quiet because we just don't want to deal with her. LOL. The teen years are going to kill me, of this I am sure.

    When I'm around my friends daughters, I want to put them in straight jackets. We were at a birthday pool party with a group of 8 year olds (maybe 7), anyway, they were awful!! There was crying, sulking, name calling and back stabbing little bitch behavior....at that age!! It was horrible. There was a leader of the pack and she was a horrible little thing. She caused so much trouble in the three hours I was there that I wanted to smack her. She ruined my friends daughters party.

    I completely feel this way too!! And I'm not being the least bit facetious.....I am truly struggling with the fact that I may want a kid, but I do NOT want to have a girl! And I'm not sure how to resolve that. I have reasons like the ones that already have been discussed, but I also think it is way too toxic of a world for girls, and getting worse by the month. I.e., the sexualization of little girls, the mainstreaming of porn and its values, girls being exposed to all manner of dangers earlier and earlier. It blows, and I had it bad enough growing up.

    Teenage girls are pretty hard to deal with. However, little girls are sweet and I think women are wonderful. Women also tend to take better care of their parents later in life than men do. My experience has been it falls to the wife of the son to care for her in-laws....

    If you can deal with girls during that 13-22 phase (some are slower to ease out of it), I would think girls are great.
