Thirteen Answers Why Girls are Harder to Raise

Who are harder to raise… Boys or Girls?
Haven’t tried raising a girl yet… hmmm hope to raise one soon though. 😉
Anyway, according to this survey, GIRLS are harder to raise…why?

Which is harder to raise:
72% voted Girls
Vote at www.opinion.com.au!

1. With boys you already know where you stand, and that’s right into the path of trouble. It’s already given, messy room, broken toys, unmade beds, just name it, you got it. But with girls, everything seems nice on the surface but beware of what’s inside! Nicely made beds turned out to have a trashbin underneath.

2. Boys are more honest, if you ask them what they’re up to, they’ll shout Wrestling! and I am doing a Batista Bomb! with our dog! Cool! But with girls, they’ll sweetly answer you… Nothing Mom! but it turned out that they are already painting the wall using your new lipstick.

3. Boys when they are young (wild and crazy) and girls when they are older (mouthy and moody).

4. Young girls have to deal with the issues of self-esteem and virtue, learning their bodies and being taught immense self respect and self worth. Young boys have to learn these principles as well, but it’s harder to teach these things to young girls, especially with all the pressure from society to fit a certain mold.

5. Girls mature faster than boys.

6. Girls costs more to raise, they start to outspend boys before puberty.

7. Girls are harder to dress than boys, they tend to have their “favorite” dress that they insists on wearing… like insisting on wearing a swimsuit going to the mall?

8. With boys, all you have to do with them is keep them from killing themselves ie: riding their bike down a huge hill, eating gross stuff, you know, boy stuff. But with girls it’s a lifetime of worry. Is that too low cut, who are her friends, is this boy nice to her, is her fiance gonna work and take care of her, is her husband treating her and her children good. Things like that means a lifetime of worry.

9. With a son you only have to worry about him, but with a girl you have to worry about every one elses sons!

10. Girls are waaaaaaay harder! Do you know how out of control their hrmones can get?!

11. Girls whine and complain too much. Boys suck everything up and act like men. They don’t whine about having to have the latest fashion of clothing or makeup or other things of that nature that girls do.

12. Girls can slam the door louder, beg longer, turns tears on and off like a faucet and invented the termn “you don’t trust me!”

13. So much for “sugar and spice and everything nice” and “snips and snails and puppydog tails.”

Whew! I’m sure glad that I am raising a Boy! 😉

Thirteen Ways to Control Stress

1. Control Anger, make a conscious choice not to become angry or upset. Do not allow yourself to waste thought and energy where it isn’t deserved

2. Breathe, before reacting to the next stressful occurrence, take three deep breaths and release them slowly.

3. Slowdown, whenever you feel overwhelmed by stress, practice speaking more slowly than usual, by slowing down your speech you’ll also appear less anxious and more in control of any situation.

4. Complete One Simple To Do, choose one simple thing you have been putting off (e.g. returning a phone call, making a doctor’s appointment) and do it immediately. Just taking care of one nagging responsibility can be energizing and can improve your attitude.

5. Get Some Fresh Air, get outdoors for a brief break, believe in the healing power of fresh air.

6. Avoid Hunger and Dehydration, cause they can provoke aggressiveness and exacerbate feelings of anxiety and stress.

7. Do a Quick Posture Check, bad posture can lead to muscle tension, pain, and increased stress. (Guilty!)

8. Recharge at the Day’s End, plan something rewarding for the end of your stressful day, even if only a relaxing bath or half an hour with a good book

9. Learn to say “No”, when asked to do something stressful.

10. Exercise, those who find time to exercise, reduce stress, strengthen their immune system, and improve their well-being are much more effective than those who do not. (Guilty again! gheez!)

11. Talk to yourself!, positive self-talk helps people change the way they look at stressful situations. This lessens the harmful effects of stress. ( I do this most of the time, this really works! )

12. Lose the Clutter, rid yourself of all the clutter that surrounds you and this will not only make your environment become more visually pleasing and relaxing, but you’ll also avoid the stress of constantly searching for important items among the excess ( =-( guilty once more… )

13. Get Rid of Static noise, when you can, take a “silence is golden” break in a quiet room to recharge your emotional and mental batteries. ( Hmm… how do i stop my 9yr old hyperactive son from his unending questions about anything? he he he)
