Funny Parenting Tweets About Raising Siblings

If you grew up as a single child, you might not get what this post is all about. However, if you had a brother or sister, or have multiple kids yourself, you will definitely relate to the tweets featured below. Scroll down for the funniest examples of sibling rivalry!

Nobody has a better bedside manner than a kid who’s trying to get their sibling they just punched to stop crying before their parents hear.

Asking your child to go get their sibling for dinner is just asking them to stand next to you and scream their sibling's name.

What I said: "Don't kick your sister in the back" What I meant: "Don't kick your sister" What she heard: "Kick your sister someplace else"

Me: where’s your brother? Daughter: I told him to go hide. Me: aww are you playing hide and seek? Daughter: he is. Me: Daughter: Me: Daughter: don’t worry I’ll find him when my movie’s over.

No one is as obnoxiously well-behaved as a child whose sibling is getting yelled at.

I see it I like it I want it I got it - my kids whenever they see a toy that belongs to their sibling

Shoutout to all the parents whose kid just lost it because a sibling “put a foot near him” or “looked at him for too long.”

Hey, parents of an only child considering having one more, know that I just split an M&M in half. An M&M. In half.

My son has been away all week on a school trip. I asked my daughter: ‘do you miss your brother?’ She looked at me puzzled and said ‘isn’t he in his room?’ ALL week.

[breaking up a fight] Me: Tell your sister you're sorry. 5-year-old: You told me not to lie.

Overheard in my house: "I'll give you thirteen dollars to stop being my sibling."

My daughter came downstairs and gave me the last bite of her favorite candy. She'd learned to share, and I was proud. Then her brother came downstairs asking who ate all of his candy. "WE did!" my daughter declared. She'd learned to share blame, and I was even prouder.

If you don't think kids could possibly tell the difference between cookie sizes down to millimeter, and that they wouldn't fight over which sibling got the smaller cookie by a single millimeter, you're just not ready for parenting.

When I was in my 20’s I knew a guy named Jesus. He had an older brother named Moses and a younger brother named Steve. If that doesn’t sum up what’s it’s like to be the 3rd kid, I don’t know what does.

*in the car* 7yo: I can count to 100,000 5yo: oh yeah, then do it me: no

5YO: I’m going to wait for my sister to get home to eat my cookie Me: That’s so sweet you’re gonna share with her 5YO: I’m not sharing, I just want her to know about it

“Stop arguing with your sister, she’s THREE” I yell, as my argument with a seven year old begins to heat up.

"Do NOT pee on your brother!" And other things you hear in a public restroom that don't seem strange at all after you have kids.

I love how horrified my mom acts when my kids show even the slightest hint of sibling rivalry. As if she didn’t spend her entire life watching my siblings and I try to murder each other.

What’s it like having 4 boys? My son just threw a waffle into the ceiling fan so he could see what would happen, with all of his brothers cheering him on. Send help.

My son keeps grabbing fists of air and screaming ‘mine’. My daughter is crying saying Tj is stealing my air....they are in my bedroom, on a Saturday morning

6yo (to her crying brother): "It's okay to be sad, sometimes we need to let our feelings out, just let yourself be sad."
Me: "Oh darling, that's so lovely, well done. Why is he crying?"
6yo: "I hit him."

When a kid asks a sibling to play a game of tag, they're basically asking if their sibling wants to take a jog that ends in a fight.

I just heard one of my kids say to her sister, "Hold still. I know what I'm doing." Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go interrupt what I assume is amateur surgery.

  1. My sister’s kids:

    1st kid: parented by the book

    2nd kid: parented by the princesses of Disney DVDs

    3rd kid: parented by the Roomba

  2. Honestly, me and my sister did/still do the cookie thing to each other. Did anyone else do that thing where you at slower than your sibling just to rub it in their face that you still have food left when they ate too fast?

  3. Years ago my son told me a story that happened to his friend:
    His friend used to tease his little brother – tell him he got his nose and than open the window and “throw it away”. He did so until one day his mother had enough and sent him downstairs from the 5th floor to find his brother’s nose. After 15 minutes “searching” in the freezing snow, his mother finally confirmed through the window that it is indeed the right nose and he can go back up.
    If that’s not an inspirational parenting than I don’t know what is.
