What are some ways to prepare for having a girl verses a boy?

Cupid’s Advice:

Preparing for a baby involves a lot of planning, and what gender you’re expecting plays into that.  Cupid has some tips on preparing for a baby girl:

1. Attention: As girls grow up they might require a lot more attention than a boy would.  Girls are usually held to stricter terms than boys are, but it’s usually better for their protection.  However, you still need to loosen the reigns at some point so they can make mistakes and learn about life first hand.

2. Relationships: When it comes to your baby girl, all boys are going to appear to be the devil, but you have to be open and compromise with your daughter about having relationships because if you hold on too tight, they’re going to rebel or sneak around behind your back.

3. Money: Not all girls are high maintenance, but the majority are. They want new clothes, shoes, accessories, make-up and hair supplies. Don’t get them everything they want, because you don’t want them to grow up to be a spoiled brat.  Make sure they appreciate the things you do get for them.
