Having a brother or sister is the best thing in the world when you’re an adult. But, when you’re a kid, your sibling can feel like a mortal enemy. We took a deep dive into the world of brotherly and sisterly meme-ing to find some memes from kids about their familial nemeses and even more from parents who are concerned about the little ones of the family.
First, some stray observations: middle children stay bitter into adulthood, older siblings just want to be left alone, the baby of the family always has more fun, and the play-fighting never stops. If you’re the parent of more than one child or grew up with a sibling of your own, you’ll find these memes to be painfully accurate and extremely relatable.
