A study by British parenting site Mumsnet in 2012 found that 45% of mothers desire a baby girl, just 22% said they wanted a boy. The study found that the prime reason mums wanted daughters was because women felt they would “bond and understand” them better. Parents are supposed to love all their children equally, but subconsciously, they may be biased, a new study suggests.  Women really do prefer daughters, and men (slightly) prefer sons, according to new research from Finnish and American scientists. From the moment they meet one another, mothers teach their daughters how to love and be loved. For better or for worse, they are an essential part of who we are. Having a little girl gives mama a better understanding of how she feels because all mothers have been little girls once. Nobody cares for the parents and siblings as much as a daughter does. No matter where they are and who they are with, daughters always have a sense of care and responsibility for their family members. Advantage of Having a Baby Girl in Your Life: Female Bonding Easier Diaper Changes Mama Can Be a Role Model Names and Nicknames Daddy's Little Princess Brings Out the Gentleman Tea Parties She Will Care for You in Your Old Age   In a US study, researchers actually found that dads brains change more when they parent a girl and discovered that fathers have different brain responses when they interact with their toddler daughters than they do when they play with their toddler sons. During daily interactions, dads are more responsive and attentive with their little daughters than with their sons. Studies showed that dads sang more often to their girl toddlers. They also spoke openly about different emotions. This is probably because feelings are more acceptable in girls.  Rules for Dads of Daughters Love her mom. Treat her mother with respect, honor, and a big heaping spoonful of public displays of affection.  Always be there. Pray for her.  Dance with her.  Tell her she's beautiful.  Give her the gift of experiences ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ The last thing you want is a patient who has spent the last nine months convincing themselves they're having a boy, only to find out they're having a girl.” Most of the time, Dr. Brizendine says that any sort of gender disappointment disappears once the baby is born. Without you realising, she changes you and makes you a better person. That's the power of a girl – a daughter. Appreciate your little girl and make her independent. If sons are close to their mother, daughters are the closest to their father. No man can ever beat the love of a father for his daughter. Anyone can become a father, but it takes the soul to be a real father. A daughter is the biggest strength, support system, and also, the weakest link of her parents.

Spoiled child is characterized as excessive, self-centered, and immature behavior". It includes lack of consideration for other people, recurrent temper tantrums, an inability to handle the delay of gratification, demands for having one's own way, obstructiveness, and manipulation to get their way. Some kids also say hurtful things as a means of trying to get what they want. If they can hurt you, you might feel bad or doubt yourself and give in. So in some cases, it's a way to achieve a more tangible goal. When children don't listen, many parents are tempted to raise their voices. But yelling isn't likely to lead to positive results. According to this study shared by BetterHelp, the long-term psychological effects of yelling at a child includes Increased Anxiety. Short-term effects are that children feel bad, they eventually learn to tune us out and as they model our behaviour of yelling, they in turn yell too and can show increased aggression.  Too often, our tantrums are born out of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. Therefore, it's important not to put yourself in a position of feeling chronically overwhelmed by getting upset over every little annoying thing your child does. One way to combat this is to think hard about what is most important. Children act mean because they're impulsive, they don't know better ways to solve problems, and their empathy isn't fully developed. “Induction” means guiding children to understand how their actions affect others.   When Your Kids Won't Listen, Do: Get on Their Level. Do find opportunities for praise.  Do set limits and keep them.  Be specific.  You're their parent, not their buddy. Be realistic with punishment. Reward the right behaviors.  Listen, listen, listen.   When Your Kids Won't Listen, Don't: Lecture your child about the broken rule and the lack of listening. Dwell on them “never” listening, bring up the incidents constantly. Punish them but instead give guidance and consequences. Belittle your child or try to make them feel bad. Don't back down from rules and limits. Don't view discipline as punishment. Discipline may feel as though you're punishing your kids.   The most powerful tool for effective discipline is attention to reinforce good behaviors and discourage others. Remember, all children want their parent's attention. Catch them being good. Children need to know when they do something bad and when they do something good.   Here are some good punishments for your child:  Time-Ins. Most parents would give their kids time-outs for bad behaviour, wherein the kids sit silently in a corner.  Exercise.  Make them do Chores.  Timer.  Practise. Punishment Jar.  Cool-Off Time.  Tidy Up the Clutter. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Positive discipline is a way of teaching and guiding children by letting them know what behavior is acceptable in a way that is firm, yet kind. Punishment describes methods of control, gained by requiring rules or orders be obeyed and punishing undesired behavior. Embrace natural consequences: When the punishment is specific to the offense and logical, kids have a better chance of modifying their behavior. Praise the right actions: Don't just punish the wrong behaviors. Make a habit of praising good decisions.

Starting at about three or four months, babies are ready to broaden their horizons to larger, organized groups. Babies feel safe to explore the world. New environments filled with new adults and other infants and children when supported by a parent or caregiver. The first 12 months of an infant's life are full of social development milestones. They go from being a helpless little creature to a vocal one-year-old with their own personality. They rapidly become more communicative and expressive with their face and body. For starters, babies will learn to speak more slowly than if you did talk to them. Not speaking with your children means their vocabularies will be smaller. Not conversing with your children also means that you're spending less time paying attention to and interacting with them. Making eye contact, talking to your baby, playing with them and showing interest in them are all brilliant ways to encourage social development (Happe and Frith, 2014; Green et al, 2017). Responding when they share things with you is helpful. Playing and interacting with your baby is crucial for their development, and will help them reach milestones related to talking, understanding words, and learning to socialize. By three months, your baby will be a master of "smile talk." Sometimes she'll start a "conversation" with a broad smile and gurgling to catch your attention. Other times she'll lie in wait, watching your face until you give the first smile before beaming back her enthusiastic response. Her whole body will participate. Be interactive and sociable: Remember, kids take their social cues from their parents, so it's important that you maintain healthy social environment. So a six-month-old baby doesn't need to interact with other six-month-olds to learn how to be social, they'll learn those skills by interacting with parents and siblings. As your baby becomes more mobile, they may start to take an interest in other babies . They'll happily play alongside another baby, and once in a while, they'll smile and coo, and imitate each other's sounds. During his second year, your toddler will develop a very specific image of his social world, friends, and acquaintances. He is at its center, and while you may be close at hand, he is most concerned about where things are in relation to himself. Even toddlers and infants reap the cognitive and emotional benefits of interacting with others. The right socially interactive environment will help children develop strong language skills, creativity, social intelligence, and confidence. Without socialization, a toddler or preschooler, wouldn't understand how to enter into a group or even child-child situation. Kids aren't born understanding how to behave with other children, adults or in public. Socially isolated children are at increased risk of health problems in adulthood. Furthermore, studies on social isolation have demonstrated that a lack of social relationships negatively impacts the development of the brain's structure. There are ways to practice social skills at home such as; building relationships through virtual play dates, display kindness by reaching out to a new friend, teach your child empathy by being considerate of others, teach self-control by taking turns, give your child the gift of not always winning and sharing.  Read similar blogs: The Importance Of Play In Promoting Healthy Child Development Taking Your Newborn Outside For Walk

Baby's head position, mother's feeding posture, holding the baby for breastfeeding, the feeding position, feeding time, and a number of feedings are all challenges for a new mom. Difficulties with getting your baby to latch, less milk supply, and sore nipples are just some of the hardships a new mom encounters. No person can be everything to everyone every second of every day. “The hardest part for me about being a mom is the guilt,” says Chicago mom Lisa Steinke. “Even though I told myself I would never be a guilty mom, that whole idea flew out the window the second I gave birth. Most people find the first six to eight weeks to be the hardest with a new baby, and whilst people may not openly discuss many of the challenges in these early weeks of parenthood (if at all), there are a number of common hurdles you may face at this time. But many first-time parents find that after the first month of parenthood, it can actually get more difficult. This surprising truth is one reason many experts refer to a baby's first three months of life as the “fourth trimester.” If months two, three, and beyond are tougher than you expected, you're not alone. Here are 5 challenges of a new mom and how to deal with them:   Lack of "ME TIME It's important to take out dedicated 'me time' for moms because it's when you're happy that your child is happy. Many moms tend to feel guilty if they can't attend 24/7 to their children's calls. This mom guilt can weigh you down and doesn't allow for a balanced existence between the woman and the mother in you. Have a shower, no matter what. Go shopping when they're asleep. Get beauty treatments at home. Get through that boxset during a feed. Visit family or friends. Make a relaxation-only rule for your baby's sleep. Sleep Deprivation Sleep loss is a common, normal experience after the arrival of a baby. However, if you develop difficulty falling asleep or returning to sleep, you should seek help. Tackling sleep problems as soon as possible may help to reduce the risk of postpartum depression. New mothers are also at risk for insomnia, daytime sleepiness, anxiety, depression, non-refreshing sleep, and fatigue. Sleep deprivation can worsen symptoms of postpartum depression, which affects one in eight mothers. Practice good sleep hygiene. Create the best sleep environment for you and your baby. Accept help and don't be afraid to ask for it. Breastfeeding Problems Common breastfeeding challenges include sore nipples. Many moms say that their nipples feel tender when they first start breastfeeding. Low milk supply. Breastfeeding challenges are common, but knowing what to expect and when to get help can help you overcome them. Breastfeed for at least 10 minutes on each side and try to keep your little one awake and actively sucking during each feeding. Use a breast pump after and in-between feedings. Eat well, get enough rest, and drink plenty of fluids. You Feel Out of Shape Getting back into shape after having a baby is hard, even for women who were fit and strong before becoming pregnant, a new study shows. Pregnancy is known to put stress on many parts of the body, including the heart, lungs, muscles, and joints. Your body changes over time; it takes a while to get close to your pre-pregnancy shape and size. Expect to naturally lose some weight before your first postpartum doctor's visit (usually around six to eight weeks after giving birth). Allow Your Body To Recuperate. Being a new mom is an important job, so focus on taking the time to enjoy that new little person in your life. Get up & move. Establish an eating philosophy. Get back to a regular exercise routine. It Pains Everywhere It is normal to experience pain all over your body after giving birth. This is because the body goes through intense strain during contractions. Sometimes the contractions can be so intense that some women continue to experience pain and aches weeks after delivery. For after-birth pain relief, you can try applying a hot water bottle or heating pad to your abdomen. You can usually also take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen, but check with your doctor first, especially if you are breastfeeding. New mothers experience a rollercoaster of emotions as they adjust to their new role. Being a mom to a new baby can be hard. If your baby cries all the time or won't sleep, parenting is even harder. Most first-time moms go into motherhood with expectations. What they'll be like as a mom, how they'll feel, and even what the baby will be like.

The postpartum period begins immediately after childbirth as the mother's body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state. The terms puerperium, puerperal period, or immediate postpartum period are commonly used to refer to the first six weeks following childbirth. “Postpartum” means the time after childbirth. Most women get the “baby blues,” or feel sad or empty, within a few days of giving birth. It's no wonder a vast majority of women feel overwhelmed and teary in the face of all this. If the baby blues are going to strike, they will within a few days of giving birth and typically last 7 to 10 days. For many women, the baby blues go away in 3 to 5 days. If your baby blues don't go away or you feel sad, hopeless, or empty for longer than 2 weeks, you may have postpartum depression. Most new moms experience postpartum "baby blues" after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues typically begin within the first two to three days after delivery, and may last for up to two weeks. The postpartum period generally includes the first 4 to 6 weeks after birth, and many cases of PPD begin during that time. But PPD can also develop during pregnancy and up to 1 year after giving birth, so don't discount your feelings if they're happening outside of the typical postpartum period. You feel hopeless, sad, worthless, or alone all the time, and you cry often. You don't feel like you're doing a good job as a new mom. You're not bonding with your baby. You can't eat, sleep, or take care of your baby because of your overwhelming despair.  Life-threatening conditions that can happen after giving birth include infections, blood clots, postpartum depression and postpartum hemorrhage. Warning signs to watch out for include chest pain, trouble breathing, heavy bleeding, severe headache and extreme pain. Avoid stairs and lifting until your doctor says these activities are OK. Don't take a bath or go swimming until the doctor says it's OK. Don't drive until your doctor says it's OK. Also wait until you can make sudden movements and wear a safety belt properly without discomfort. Adjusting to motherhood. Get plenty of rest. Get as much sleep as possible to cope with tiredness and fatigue. Seek help. Don't hesitate to accept help from family and friends during the postpartum period, as well as after this period. Eat healthy meals. Maintain a healthy diet to promote healing. Exercise. Postpartum depression is often treated with psychotherapy (also called talk therapy or mental health counseling), medication or both. Psychotherapy. It may help to talk through your concerns with a psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional. Mostly new moms suffer from postpartum, if not all. But this would eventually goes away. Just remember, you are one of the strongest and bravest human being giving birth to another human. That alone can gives you strenght. Your child is your strenght!

If you'd prefer not to bathe your baby every day, a quick 'top and tail' clean will do. Clean your baby's face and eyes with cotton wool and warm water. Use a washer to clean your baby's hands and nappy area. Make sure you support your baby's face and head clear of the water and talk gently to them so they feel safe. In fact, we recommend delaying your newborn's first full bath for at least two weeks. Newborns shed about three layers of skin within their first week, which often surprises new parents. Cleaning Baby's Face Start with the baby's face. Use a moistened, clean washcloth or cotton ball to wipe each eye, starting at the bridge of the nose and then wiping out to the corner of the eye. Wash the rest of the baby's face with a soft, moist washcloth without soap. Clean the outside folds of the ears with a soft washcloth. Try our Baby Washcloths. Cleaning Baby's Ears All you'll need is a washcloth or cotton ball and some warm water. It's not safe to use cotton swabs or to stick anything inside your baby's ear. Use a Safety Ear Wax Remover for Newborns/Toddlers. If you notice earwax inside the ear, you don't need to remove it. Never put anything in your child's ear canal to remove a foreign body. Removal should only be attempted by a professional with the proper equipment.  Cleaning Baby's Eyes It is recommended to clean the eyes of the baby a couple of times a day: after waking up, that is when there is a greater accumulation of secretions. Soak one cotton ball in some warm water and squeeze out extra water. Clean the corners of your baby's eyes, wiping gently from the inside corners to the outside corners. Use a new cotton ball for each wipe. Wipe gently around each nostril to get rid of mucus. Cleaning Baby's Nose Wipe gently around each nostril to get rid of mucus. You can use Safety Easy Nasal Booger Remover. It's best not to put anything inside your baby's nostrils. This can hurt the lining of the nose and cause bleeding. Medical experts agree that you shouldn't do it more than three to four times per day to prevent creating inflammation or nosebleeds from irritation. If your baby hates this process and cries or fights it, you're better off skipping this method, or at least waiting and trying another time. Cleaning Baby's Mouth Cleaning your baby's teeth is important for keeping their mouths healthy. Without good care, they can get cavities and other problems. Before their first teeth start coming in, though, newborns need their tongues, gums, and inner cheeks to be bacteria-free to avoid potential health issues. Try to use a soft-bristled toothbrush for cleaning the mouth. Moistened the brush before using it. Use it on both teeth and tongue in a circular motion. Try to avoid using the brush on the newborn tongue. Buy Silicone Finger Toothbrush for Toddlers and Baby Cleaning Baby's Tounge To clean your newborn's tongue, you should first wash your hands and then take a small piece of moist cloth or gauze around your finger and use it to gently rub the surface of the tongue in circular motions. A newborn's gums and tongue should be cleaned after every feeding. It is important to care for your child's teeth and dental (oral) health from birth. Practicing healthy habits can prevent or reduce tooth decay (cavities) in infants and children. Always clean your infant's gums after feeding. Buy Tooth Tissues with Xylitol, Teeth Wipes for Babies and Toddlers. Your newborn should be bathed with a sponge bath for the first few weeks of life. This is the simplest way to clean your baby before the umbilical cord falls off. Sponge baths are also the best way to bathe boys who were circumcised while the circumcision site heals.  Bath time might be part of your nightly ritual, but doctors actually don't recommend daily baths for babies. Excess exposure to water can zap their skin of moisture and worsen conditions like eczema. Then again, not bathing your baby often enough can also aggravate eczema, plus lead to other infections.

Taste buds are found mostly on the tongue, but also on the roof of the mouth and along the lining of the throat. At birth, babies have about 10,000 taste buds. You'll have between 2,000 and 8,000 taste buds as an adult they get replaced every few weeks. But as you age, some stop working or aren't replaced. The truth is that babies are born with a sense of taste - they actually develop taste buds in the womb. Your baby absorbs the flavors of the mother's food choices during pregnancy through amniotic fluid. And as your baby grows, their sense of taste changes and they can distinguish different flavors. In fact, as a baby they may have a wider distribution of taste buds in their mouth than you do as an adult. Babies who smack their lips in satisfaction at a new flavour make most parents happy. But breast milk or baby formula are the best food for your baby during those first six months. From four to six months onwards, your baby can start tasting regular food.  Taste buds in newborns can be found on the tonsils as well as the usual places like the tongue. During their first three months, your baby can distinguish between sweet and bitter tastes. A study conducted by researchers at the University of Montreal has concluded that the smell of infants triggers a physiological response in mothers similar to that experienced by hungry people presented with a delicious meal.   Most experts suggest not introducing sweets for the first year of your child's life. You want them to develop a taste for other, healthier food items first. But realistically, there are no specific medical guidelines for introducing chocolate to your baby. The American Association for Paediatrics suggests that chocolate should not be given to children before the age of two (1) because it is a source of refined sugar. But it is also best avoided by young children because of its caffeine content. Infants can't process solid foods early on, but they do have taste buds. Infant taste buds develop in the womb, so this statement is FALSE. They can taste things that their mother ingests because it gets into the amniotic fluid around them that they swallow.   A baby's first taste buds appear on their tongue while they're still in the womb. A newborn can taste sweet, sour, bitter, and savory. But a child's taste buds are different from an adult's. Infants and children have a higher concentration of taste buds that are receptive to sweet tastes. Scientists believe this is to make them more receptive to their mother's milk.

Caesarean section, also known as C-section or caesarean delivery, is the surgical procedure by which one or more babies are delivered through an incision in the mother's abdomen, often performed because vaginal delivery would put the baby or mother at risk.   Babies born by Caesarean section have dramatically different gut bacteria to those born vaginally, according to the largest study in the field. The UK scientists say these early encounters with microbes may act as a "thermostat" for the immune Increasingly, researchers are finding that c-sections are linked to both short and long-term health problems for baby. Short-term problems include breathing difficulty, risk of head/facial laceration from surgery, breastfeeding difficulties, and delayed bonding.   There's usually no limit to the number of caesarean sections that you can have. But the more caesareans you have, the longer each operation will take, and the higher your risk of complications becomes. If you've had a caesarean in the past, it's still possible to give birth to your baby vaginally. Because first-time C-sections often lead to C-sections in future pregnancies, a vaginal birth is generally the preferred method of delivery for first pregnancies. About 2 in 3 babies in the United States are born via vaginal delivery, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. As with any major surgery there are several risks associated with a cesarean delivery. These include blood clots, hemorrhaging, and reaction to the anesthesia. Some of the main risks to you of having a caesarean include: infection of the wound,  causing redness, swelling, increasing pain and discharge from the wound. infection of the womb lining,  symptoms include a fever, tummy pain, abnormal vaginal discharge and heavy vaginal bleeding.   The prevalence of maternal mortality and maternal morbidity is higher after CS than after vaginal birth. CS is associated with an increased risk of uterine rupture, abnormal placentation, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth, and preterm birth, and these risks increase in a dose–response manner.

Birthmarks are areas of discolored and/or raised skin that are present at birth or within a few weeks of birth. Birthmarks are made up of abnormal pigment cells or blood vessels. Although the cause of birthmarks is not known, most of them are harmless and do not require treatment. Vascular birthmarks happen when blood vessels don't form correctly. Either there are too many of them or they're wider than usual. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by an overgrowth of the cells that create pigment (color) in skin. Birthmarks are quite common. In fact, it's estimated that more than 10 percent of babies have some sort of birthmark. Some types of birthmarks appear more frequently than others. For example, vascular birthmarks like hemangiomas occur in 5 to 10 percent of newborns. Most birthmarks are permanent, but a few types fade as a child grows. Birthmarks are common and usually harmless. But some may require treatment for cosmetic reasons or because of rapid growth. Still others may be a sign of an underlying disease. You may notice the birthmark changes color, becoming slightly yellow or orange. The surface can feel pebbly or warty. Where it usually develops on the body: This birthmark usually appears on the scalp or face. Occasionally, it develops on the neck or another area of the body. Throughout history, birthmarks were feared by superstitious, paranoid, and religious fanatics. But in the present day, many believe birthmarks are lucky omens with special meanings indicating reincarnation, life purpose, or destiny. Stork bites, sometimes also called a salmon patch or angel's kiss, are common newborn birthmarks typically marked by a red or pink color and smooth, flat texture. Around 80 percent of babies are born with nevus simplex, though they're significantly more likely to affect white babies compared to babies with darker skin. Port wine stain birthmarks are the rarest (less than 1 percent of people are born with them) and occur because the capillaries in the skin are wider than they should be. Dr. Kos says these birthmarks do not go away, and in fact, gradually, over the years, they usually darken and thicken. Most patients decide to go forward with birthmark removal for one of three reasons: The birthmark interferes with normal activity; The birthmark bleeds or displays other distressing symptoms; The birthmark makes the patient feel uncomfortable or self-conscious with his or her appearance. Usually birthmarks are only a concern for your appearance. But certain types can increase your risk of skin cancer. If your birthmark bleeds, hurts, itches, or becomes infected, call your health care provider. Some people have birthmarks due to their genes. For example, a child may have the same type of birthmark as a father, mother, grandparent, aunt, or uncle. In some cases, the birthmark appears in the exact same spot as the relative!

Parenthood is defined as carrying the responsibilities of a parent, while the word parent simply means a father or a mother. A single parent is simply that one parent raises a child in their household without a partner living with them. Single-parenting would cause a problem to both parent and child. Less opportunity for parents and children to spend time together. Effects of the breakup on children's school performance and peer relations. Disruptions of extended family relationships. Problems caused by the parents' dating and entering new relationships. Single parent households usually have a shortage of finances, which can have emotional effects on the children, such as increased frustration and anger and an increased danger of violent behavior. They might experience feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, abandonment, and have difficulty with socializing. If parents aren't able to cope with the stress caused by single parenting, they run the risk of experiencing burnout. This is a common condition among single parents that can often lead to increased anxiety, depression, and physical health issues. Single-parent children can feel frightened, stressed, and frustrated by the difference between their lives and their friends'. Children of single parents are more prone to various psychiatric illnesses, alcohol abuse, and suicide attempts than children from homes with two parents. Children raised by single mothers are more likely to fare worse on a number of dimensions, including their school achievement, their social and emotional development, their health and their success in the labor market.  Single parenting disadvantages: Having less money. ‌As a single parent, you may be at a financial disadvantage. Spending less quality time.  Work overload and multitasking‌. Negative feelings. Behavioral problems. Relationship problems. Today single parent families have become even more common than the so-called “nuclear family” consisting of a mother, father, and children. A single-parenting would be better if a sole parent can provide the required secure emotional base, clear boundaries, love and warmth that children need for healthy standard development. Children can thrive with one loving role model. Spending time together is the real key to a happy and mentally healthy child. Children raised by single parents can be just as happy and mentally healthy as children living with two biological parents. Whether a child has one parent or more, children do well when they have parenting that's nurturing, warm, sensitive, responsive and flexible. Single parenting advantages: Undivided attention. ‌Children of a single parent usually get their parent's undivided attention.  Freedom to make decisions. Fewer arguments.  Good role model.  Independence and responsibility.  Sense of belonging.  Close relationship.  Positive parenting. The hardest part of being a single parent is that there's no one to lean on. The loneliness is hands down the toughest part of single motherhood. As pretty much any single mom will tell you, having a child on your own is not selfish at all. In fact, being a single mom is one of the most selfless things you can do. Single moms don't often have much time and/or money to spend on themselves. Everything they do is for their families. Being a single parent doesn't mean you're alone. You may have family members, friends, or neighbors nearby that can pitch in when you need them. Being a single parent is even much better rather than having a violent spouse or unsupportive husband. Don't be too harsh on your self thinking about what your child could feel without a mom or a dad. Raising them alone is already enough for them to feel that you love them.   Read related blogs: Baby's Basic Needs: Food, Shelter and Clothing and It's Easy To Become A Dad, But Harder To Become A Father

The Bible is clear that children are to be looked upon as a blessing, not an inconvenience.  In a US study, researchers actually found that dads brains change more when they parent a girl and discovered that fathers have different brain responses when they interact with their toddler daughters than they do when they play with their toddler sons. A daughter is the biggest strength, support system, and also, the weakest link of her parents. Without you realising, she changes you and makes you a better person.   Scientific Reasons To Have Daughters: Daughters make men more generous. They make parents more likely to favor gender equality.  They're more likely to support their aging parents financially.  Having two is apparently the recipe for happiness.  They can grow up into friends.  They make dads live longer.   When parents are old, daughters become more responsible than sons. This is because before marriage they care of their own parents and after marriage they take care of their family. Hence the essence of responsibility never dies in daughters. Daughters are more understanding and tolerant when compared to sons. Perks of having a son: You learn that boys do cry.  You learn that toys are toys.  You get to help shape a well-rounded, sensitive, respectful man.  Your expectations and beliefs are challenged.  You can better understand your partner (or dad or brother or friend) . You have the opportunity to nurture a tight bond.   The Clothes. Sure, baby girls' clothes might be cuter, but boys' togs are simpler and fewer in number, which makes a new mama's life much easier. This simplicity comes with a hidden bonus: you won't spend nearly as much money dressing your little guy as you would a girl. Sons express and build trust and hence are good communicators. Moms encourage their sons to express their feelings and are quite patient to them. Compared to dads, moms are usually soft-spoken and good listeners. Moms not only nurture their children but they also take care of their homeworks, playtime and other things. Male babies on average have greater difficulty self-regulating their emotional state and therefore have a greater reliance on emotional support, especially from their mother. While it may seem taboo to admit you have a preference for the sex of your unborn child, it's OK to admit your dreams. Giving birth is a miracle, whether it's a boy or a girl. Each and every time a baby presents to the world and takes his or her first breath, it is a guarantee that life goes on. Parents and family members rejoice and make plans for their future with their newest member.  Read related blogs: Why Having A Daughter Is Always Better and So Much Joy In This Little Boy
