 Harder to Manage Girls Than Boys in the Teenage Phase

A study of parents has revealed that girls are harder to manage as teenagers than boys.

According to the Simple Spotless Skin study of 3,000 mothers and fathers, two thirds of parents said girls were harder to raise than teenage boys with almost three quarters admitting they argue more regularly with daughters than with sons.

A third blamed 'mood swings', 27 per cent said they were 'rude' and 12 per cent admitted their teenage girl was regularly 'aggressive'.

Three quarters said girls have a lot more hang-ups about image than male teens - with the biggest issue being spotty skin, followed by weight.

"Teenage years are notoriously difficult for both boys and girls and there's no doubt parents take the brunt of it," the Daily Mail quoted study spokesman Tenley Soanes as saying.

"Issues like weight, spots and quarrels with friends will have caused concern for teenagers 30 years ago so it doesn't come as a surprise that they are still a big worry for teenagers today.

"Some things are inevitable for teens, as it's a time of great change for their bodies. Gaining weight, being moody or getting spots are all things parents will have to tackle," Soanes added.
