I’m going to have a baby, my first child, and it’s a boy. Some of my friends say it’s harder to raise a boy child and some say it’s harder to raise a girl.

There are different problems associated with raising a boy or a girl, but either one is just as difficult as the other. For information you can depend on, talk to your obstetrician and later your paediatrician, and possibly a professional counsellor as the child grows older.
