This question always interested me as this board always features far more difficult boys than girls. I had one very difficult girl but she grew up early. I had always wanted boys only. I thought they were easier haha. I don't anymore. I think some girls may be whiney teens and of course some girls do have problems similar to our difficult son's, but I think there are more difficult males than females. Maybe people are just more rmbarassed when it's a female although I don't see why. I have a lifelong difficult 39 year old and Gone Boy up and left is. Sonic is an angel child, but my only boy who is. Jumper and princess and granddaughter are sweeter than sweet and living in a way that my older boys never were plus we can do girl things together and have fun. Just musing on the gender gap this morning, if there is one. Maybe it's just the fact that in many families boys grow up without dad and need the consistent male role model? I don't have answers, only questions. As adults, my girls (and Sonic) have been amazing and fun Not the case with 39 and Gone Boy, who left when he found himself a honey who didn't want to share him. He was compliant in this. Even if 39 were nice, we have nothing in common. I don't like videogames...lol. He has no interest in anything else.
