Most parents love male child more, hell no, same as female child. Whether you agree or not, that girl child will help you with your younger children at one time or another, its a fundamental principle, natures way of training future mothers.
Fact is, you would be comfortable leaving your kids with a female baby sitter, guys makes excellent baby sitters too but you would rather get a female nanny ten times over. A girl has an instinct to provide and to take care, provided the parents are responsible enough to train up such girl child to handle such responsibilities.
I'll prefer both gender as offspring, but I wish I have a girl first, so she can be trained to be a responsible good sister and good future mother!
