Oh, parents…we can only imagine the trials and tribulations that you’re experiencing right now.
Especially if you have MORE THAN ONE KIDDO to look after during these unprecedented and turbulent times.
You’re trapped in the house with no escape and, as you can probably guess, the kids are at each others’ throats…and then that spills over to the parents who then lose their minds and turn on each other, etc.
The whole thing is just a huge fiasco!
But, at least you can laugh with some of these funny tweets from parents who are parenting siblings…let’s take a look.
1. Yeah, pretty much.
You know it’s gonna end badly…
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.

2. You know that’s the truth!
We’ve all been there before.
No one is as obnoxiously well-behaved as a child whose sibling is getting yelled at.

3. This is gonna get ugly.
Let the crying commence.
Hell hath no fury like a child whose sibling touched the automatic door opener button before they did.

4. Back and forth.
It’s a non-stop tug of war.
I see it
I like it
I want it
I got it
– my kids whenever they see a toy that belongs to their sibling

5. Please, stop! It’s gonna be okay!
Stop before Mom gets here!
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.

6. An offer you can’t refuse.
I’d like to know the outcome of this.
Overheard in my house: "I'll give you thirteen dollars to stop being my sibling."

7. You don’t have a choice.
You’ll do it and you’ll like it!
8: I’m bored
Me: play with your brother or sister
8: don’t want to
Me: ok we spent thousands of pounds on fertility treatments to get them for you so you need to fucking play with them

8. Maybe in the shin?
This is a tough one…
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"

9. That doesn’t really help…
And that’s not what I meant.
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.

10. Sounds delicious!
I'll have an order of a missing shoe, with a side of child crying because her sibling won't stop singing.
— Stephanie Ortiz (@Six_Pack_Mom) November 14, 2017
11. We’ll be back.
But let’s try to save time, okay?
If I could just go ahead and get a prescription for the toddler licking the floor that’d save me another trip here next week.

12. Just stop it!
Didn’t really see that coming…
"STOP TELLING YOUR BROTHER THAT HE DOESN'T HAVE RHINO POWERS!!" is something that I never knew I'd be yelling this often.
— ReasonsMySonIsCrying (@ReasonsMySonCry) June 17, 2014
13. Fight to the death.
Just like the WWE.
The dream is sleeping in on Sunday, the reality is the sibling rivalry cage match happening in the living room needs a referee.
— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) November 15, 2015
14. Ain’t that the truth?
Happens every single time.
Me: Hey bud, you want to read a book?
Me: Do a puzzle?
Me: Okay well I have to put your brother down for a nap. Just be quiet please.
