According to a new survey, 47 percent of Americans want a boy as their first child, because they're not as hard to raise as girls.

Only 21 percent said they wanted a girl first – and 32 percent said didn't have a preference either way.

Of those that said they'd prefer a son, 45 percent said that having a son would be "less hard work," while 31 percent thought the son would do a better job of looking after the younger kids better. And, 19 percent, said they wanted their male child to carry the family name. (CBS News)
