Do mothers love their sons or daughters more?
A new survey suggests that mothers are more critical of their daughters, more indulgent of their sons. More than half said they had formed a stronger bond with their sons and mothers were more likely to describe their little girls as “stroppy” and “serious”, and their sons as “cheeky” and “loving”.
Is it better to have a daughter or son first?
Almost half of Americans want their first child to be a boy, according to a new study. 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.
