Ah… siblings. No one quite knows how to push your buttons quite as effectively as your brother or sister, and you theirs. You can expect to get different reactions based on the type of sibling the universe has decided to saddle with, so read on and see how many of these types of sibling you have (and which category you fall into yourself!)

#1: Saints In Disguise

The saints in disguise are cunning enough to never let mom and dad see their misbehaviour, coordinating their villainous plots to ensure that the blame  is always passed on to the other sibling. It doesn’t help that they know exactly how to charm any adult around them with cute displays of over-the-top politeness. But little Damien isn’t fooling you, but good luck trying to prove it to Mom and Dad.

#2: The Borrower

“Sharing is caring!” will be repeated by your parents more times than you can count, and this type of sibling uses it as an excuse to help themselves to… well… everything. No toy is safe, no piece of clothing doesn’t fit, and no equally-portioned piece of dessert juuuust quite equally portioned enough. It will get to the point where they don’t feel then even need to ask you anymore, and before you know it, there you will be, looking for your prized item, only to realize that your “borrowing” sibling has already claimed it for themselves, and demands they need it for the foreseeable future and that you’re selfish for even suggesting it be returned. Of course, you could go tell mom and dad, but you already know what they will say… “Sharing is caring!”

#3: The Golden Child

Without exception, this is the youngest child. With mom and dad already relatively pleased with how you and any other older siblings turned out, and probably getting more tired with age, you’ll notice that their parenting techniques have grown somewhat… relaxed compared to when you were your siblings age. They stay up later than you did, watch more inappropriate content than you did, and get punished way waaaaay less. The resulting chaos will inevitably spew from arguments starting with “they get away with everything!” This will occasionally result in The Golden Child becoming a Saint In Disguise, and then you’re in real trouble.

#4: The Third Parent

Sometimes, but not always, the older sibling. This type has somewhere along the line decided that Mom and Dad’s parenting guidance isn’t enough, and you’ll fail miserably as a human being unless they intervene. While older might mean wiser, and you can see the logic in their adamant demands for you to “eat your greens” or “tidy your room,” sometimes having a carbon copy of mom and dad can be more than a little overwhelming, and rebellion can kick in.

#5: Teenage Hormones In Human Form

Ugh… teenagers. All those hormones and bodily changes and misdirected angst where the whole world is wrong and they’re the only ones that are right, and they know better, and on and on and on… It’s bad enough for the parents to try do deal with these fragile emotional-wrecks, but at least they have some semblance of authority over them. As a sibling though, it’s best to just get out of their way, as more often than not they’ll will not have come up with today’s reason to complain about how the universe and everyone it sucks – don’t give them that reason. They’ll find one anyway, that’s guaranteed, but don’t be that reason.

#6: The “Why Can’t You Be More Like” Sibling

The WCYBML is a high achiever, and boy do they know it. Now we don’t want to discourage studying hard, and going for high grades, but when it’s attained at your expense, then we have a problem. This usually results from suffering in comparison to them. When so-and-so gets straight A’s, suddenly your B+ has lost its sheen. When the WCYBML knows how to play the piano, while you’re still figuring out what those smaller black bars are called, there’s no denying it can hurt. Still, there is pleasure in seeing them go apoplectic whenever they get the occasional “A-” or “only” a 99% score.

#7: The Mystery Sibling

Sometimes you might forget you have a sibling, their lives, likes, dislikes, passions and interests all a mystery, because you never see them. At home they will rarely leave their room save for when nature calls (food going in – food coming out), but even then they never engage. They have friends at school you know they hang out with, but none of this is shared with you. One day they might want to make a connection, but for now, you only know they exist because of their closed bedroom door.

#8: The Tagalong

We’ve all been there. You’ve just about managed to convince your usually-restrictive parents to allow you to go outside and play with your friends. You’ve come up with, and successfully demonstrated that the park is a safe place, only a block or two away, and that all your cool friends are going to be there. Those golden words escape your parents’ lips “Okay, you can go…” but your moment of ecstatic joy remains that, a moment, as it’s followed with “… take your brother/sister.” That’s it, game over. It’s almost worth not going now, but you know that’s no longer an option. So there you are, an older child or a young adult, forced to bring along your immature little hellion along, even though none of your peers had to. Any type of game to play is significantly stifled by having to cater to this younger version of you that can’t run as fast or even take an interest. Their surmounting boredom will come with consequences, such as bugging your friends, throwing a tantrum, or trying to get lost on purpose just to watch how pissed of mom and dad will be later on when they tell them (in exquisite detail) just how lackadaisical you were in looking after your baby demon. Next time just stay at home.
