I wish I knew!! I always wanted a girl but after 3 boys it doesn't look like I'll have any comparison. My boys are great kids but VERY competitive! I think sibling rivary is stronger in boys. and I think another bonus is that right now my boys could care less about fashion, My oldest son is 11. When I was 11 I wanted the coolest clothes and shoes. Now, electronics......thats another story!!!!!

Hi everyone,

There is probably some truth that girls are a little more of challenge in particular when their hormones kick in. However, the same could be said for boys. I have two of each, so I have had the chance to experience both. My girls definitely were more of challenge when the hormones kicked in, but I little easier for me because I understood what they were going through. But they were more of a challenge for their dad, because they were no longer little girls. On the other hand, my boys were a little more of a challenge for me, because I didn't always get what they were going through. In particular as they made the transition from being young boys and made the transition to being young men. Whereas their dad got that part LOL.

i swear

my odd would cry for chocolate in the year before she got her af. i was dying for that event to happen by the time it did and i thin she was too. the other two have been far easier... but kali frightens me with her behaviour at four... i am terrified to think what a hellion she will be when she is 14

I need a good plan

My kids dont seem to want to do much of anything of course the older ones are boys but my three year old daughter loves to clean she helps fold laundry yes she does wash rags and such small things and puts them away she tossed her diapers in the trash when she was really small and now cleans house when she decides it needs done she is amazing the boys dont want to do much but complain if they have to do chores so what do you do and it seems like you can tell them to do it til your blew in the face and they still dont want to listen

I want to know stuckathomemom. What are the ages of your boys? It seems that no matter what age or stage they are in. It is hard for children, teenagers, or young adults to do their chores. I've had that experience and I'm still going through it. You talk and talk and it seems like it goes in one ear and come out of the other ROFL.
