0 in the 0 -2 he just turned 2.
1 in the 2-5
1 in the 6-9
2 in the 10 -12
1 in the 13 to 19
1 in their 20's
O-2 is the most time consuming.
15 to 29 is the hardest emotionally -well for me so far.
Every age comes with its own problems and blessings.

Definitely different for each child.
DS1 - always been a full on hard kid, so stubborn and defiant. Now at 6 he is finally getting a bit easier.
DS2 - he was extremely hard from about 3 weeks old until 2yrs old. Then we had a relatively easy year, until DS3 was born. The last year has been just so hard.
DS3 - cried for basically the first 4 months. Since then, he has been the easiest baby I have ever met, calm, chilled, sleeps. He is absolutely nothing like my first 2 kids, they were never easy as babies.

For me it's harder.
I am not someone who can handle endless talking that requires a response or else I get accused of NEVER EVER listening, in a massive rant that involves OTT melodramatic sounds and slamming doors.
I also can't handle attitude from someone who is asking for my help. A lot of questions she asks are answered... only to be met with, "No." As in, no, I am not telling her the truth. This happens several times each day. Seriously... if you do not trust my ability to provide you an accurate answer don't ask me in hte first place!
And the STUPID arguing. The other day she shoved a drink into my midsection then let go... it dropped and my shoe was then filled with smoothie. In hte middle of Target. When I asked her why... she said she wasn't even holding it. Ever. I was. It was me who dropped it. Despite me witnessing it happening. Big arguement ensued.

For us (i have a nearly 10 year old and a 3 year old)....i say, as they get older the issues get way bigger but not as often. Where with the little ones, they have daily issues that are pretty minor.
When my oldest was little i thought it would get so much easier once he started school...sooooo wrong!!
So yes, imo the older they get the harder it gets.

I have DD 18, DS 16, DS 11, DSD 8 and due in a week with DS.
I think it depends so much on each childs personality.
DD 18 has been hard work since birth. She is a walking talking problem. I love her more than anything but I dont particularly like her.
DS 16 is easy peasy Mr Responsible and Sensible but a very sensitive person which brings its own challenges.
DS 11 is my least challenging child. Very happy, sociable child.
DSD 8 her only challenges she presents are not her fault. Its the adults in her life (bio mum & DH)
I do think I find my younger 2 easier simply because ive already been there & done that due to the older DD & DS.

I have a 2.5 year old and a 7 year old. DP has a 6yo, 10yo and 13yo. From my experience with these ages, the toddler stage is the most difficult and frustrating. I find they get easier after 5 yrs.

6 mths up until 2 years has been easiest for us! 4 year old is the biggest challenge at the moment
