Quote of the Day
By Dr. Steven Taylor @ 11:43 am

“Kids are a lot of work. Everything is a fight”-Collin Cowherd, ESPN Radio.


Althought, then he ruins it by saying: “They say boys are easier”-Collin, of course, has a little girl. Only people withe little girls say that little boys are easier.

All I can say to that quote is: Dude: give me a call, let’s talk.

Having worked with small children at church, I question this thesis. Now, I do know while little girls are easier to handle when they are little (or so it seems to me), I also know that when the girls are teenagers, we parents of little boys will then be able to laugh and laugh and laugh (the way the parents of little girls laugh at us all-boy families when our kids are rolling around on the floor wrastlin’).

Plus, I used to think that one kid was a lot of work, too…

  1. Preach it!

  2. I’ve got three sons. I’ll take my lumps now. When these poor bastards with daughters have to listen to all the bitching and whining about…everything - because for teenage girls evertything is end of the freaking world - I’ll be sending my boys out to mow the lawn and take out the garbage.

    Of course, right now I’m losing MY freaking mind. ;-)

  3. Exactly!

    I can’t imagine trying to get three teenage girls out the door every morning for school!

    Comment by Dr. Steven Taylor — Friday, September 23, 2005 @ 1:19 pm

  4. To parents of girls laughing at dealing with little boys:

    He who laughs last, laughs best.

    Of course, I say this not even being a parent, but I do work with kids every week (soon to be twice a week).

    There are ways little boys are easier. You always know what they are thinking and feeling - rare is the little boy who hides his emotions.

    Comment by B. Minich, PI — Friday, September 23, 2005 @ 3:10 pm

  5. Well, as the only Poliblog reader who seems to have a mixed litter, let me tell you that the little boy is WAY easier than the first little girl, who just turned three this week. The little girl has a level of emotion that the little boy (who’s five) just cannot match.

    OTOH, the little girls are a lot easier to potty train, and they know how to pout to great effect.

    Either way, I’m getting the worst of both worlds. ;-)

    (and I used to think TWO kids was hard work!)

  6. I hear that.

    Comment by Dr. Steven Taylor — Saturday, September 24, 2005 @ 10:02 am

  7. Well, as the mom of three boys, 2 of which are teenagers now, I can say that they do get some easier as they get older, but it’s still no cake walk. Remember, teenage boys have the highest auto insurance rates, and for well deserved reasons, it would seem.

    Comment by Jan — Monday, September 26, 2005 @ 7:44 am

  8. Trust, I have no illusions about easy. I am just speaking in relative terms. I would think that on balance teenage boys are easier than teenage girls.
