Are boys easier to raise than girls? A recent survey says a majority of people think so.

The survey asked over two thousand recently married couples about which they would prefer as a first child:

45% said boys are “less hard work” than girls.

33% said boys are better at looking after younger brothers and sisters.

19 % admitted they wanted a son to carry the family name.

But even though boys are preferred as the oldest child, couples did not rule out having a girl altogether – 37per cent said they would like to have a daughter second.

The study found that while raising a boy is perceived as easier, couples who wanted to have a daughter first see older girls as ‘better role models’ to their younger siblings.
