(STLMoms) – Who’s more expense to raise?  Girls or boys? An article on Wall St Cheat Sheet is asking the question.

The article points out that girls often have more clothes, parties,  expensive hobbies, and even haircuts.

But boys still aren’t cheap. More boys than girls play sports for longer periods which means equipment fees, registration costs, medical insurance and more.  The article also notes that boys tend to eat more than girls, adding to the food budget.
