Boys.
They will be punks, rastas or metalheads, they will drink and binge, they will drive too fast, they pee standing up, and then they have children.

And it's their turn to suffer.

As a teacher boys are definitely most challenging

As a parent girls can be when they start becoming conscious of er... boys

So boys I chose because really they have some annoying habits and are rather loud and demanding.

Well, I have seven weeks of experience in raising a boy, and my work buddy with his eight week old daughter seems to be having pretty much the same problems as we do. So this might be a tad too small sample size to form an opinion on.

As a father of a boy and a girl, grand father of two boys and two girls and uncle to four neices, I voted girls. I still don't understand women, young or old.

I have got a nine year old daughter and a six year old son. From my personal experience raising a boy is so much easier. My daughter is giving me grey hairs, she is constantly challenging my authority, while my son is just a little easy to handle little fellow. I guess my daughter inherrited my wifes personality, while my son resembles my temprament a lot ;-)

Wow - when I voted I never expected girls to actually pull ahead. Wonder if it's just because there are more dads here, and we just have more difficulty relating to our daughters?

My wife would tell you that girls are harder.  She grew up with three brothers and three sisters.

Geoff, I suspect the fact we are mostly males here contributes, for sure.  The people I mentioned arguing in my set up post, it was a woman who said boys are impossible....so perhaps it is an innocent and honest difference in perspective.

Can't vote since I have no kids (and probably should be barred from ever)
but Louis CK had some sage words on the matter:

Boys f**k things up, Girls are f**ked up.

A boy will break things, cause financial damage. A girl will break your soul and cause mental anguish...as he said.
Just from life observations this seems fairly accurate LOL

I'd imagine it's just the individual kid and who you raise em.

My son was a hellion from the time he was little till he hit his early teens, then he mellowed out. My daughter was great up until she hit eleven, and now at twelve I feel she might not make it to thirteen.


So I cannot vote. They are both pains in the ass at different times.

So what I get from this thread is what I have suspected all along. Children are to be avoided in any context.

Then the worst is yet to come. Be prepared Exclamation.
 
I cannot vote either. I only have a 17-year old daughter.
