The bond formed between siblings who grow up together is unlike any other. Although they fight over who gets what snacks, they will go to great lengths to ensure each other’s comfort when it truly matters. A touching video of an older brother and his younger sister is going viral on social media. The video, which was originally posted on TikTok by the children’s mother Kelsey Fowler, has received over 4,000 upvotes since being shared by u/mindyour to the r/MadeMeSmile Reddit community.
The video’s text inlay reads, “Must be nice to have an older brother.” The clip shows a young girl standing in front of a puddle, hesitant to walk through it for fear of ruining her shoes. Despite her mother’s assurances that it is only a small amount of water, the crying girl raises her arms and asks to be carried across. Her older brother rushes in and carries her through the puddle in his arms. The endearing video warmed people’s hearts online, with Reddit users sharing their own stories about having a caring brother.
“I have an older brother. And it really can be nice. Despite the fact that really do annoy each other, a lot, we also know we’ll have each others backs when we need it.” Another added, “That’s so adorable. My little sister was born when I was 14. I’m in my 40s and she’s almost 30 now, but you never stop being a big brother no matter how old you get.” A third chimed in, “Yeah. Bro’s are the absolute best. Im lucky to have an older and a younger 😄 Wouldnt change it for anything.”
Meanwhile, some users also shared the mischievous side of their relationship with siblings. One wrote, “My older brother would push me in that puddle and then a wrestling match would start.” Another added, “My sister would have pushed me over and laughed. I’m thinking a brother would have been better.”
Some also came forward sharing how they missed out on some of life’s experiences because they did not have siblings. One Reddit user noted, “I didn’t have a sibling that I lived with and as a kid I thought it was cool but when I turned 10 and started to realize the importance of family that’s when I started to wish I lived with my little brother and wished I had a sister because I know I would protect her with my life.”
The original post has gathered almost 11 million views on TikTok since being posted earlier this year. The children’s mother has also posted other videos that depict the beautiful bond between these adorable siblings. In one of those, the boy can be seen helping his sister patiently with a puzzle. The text inlay reads, “The way he talks to his little sister,” and the video has over 15k views and more than a thousand comments.
One user commented, “I love how patient he is with her! you are doing an amazing job mama!” Another added, “please tell us how u did such good work in raising this sweetly.” Another video shows the boy holding an umbrella for his sister before opening a door for her like a true gentleman. The text inlay on the clip reads, “Hope she never settles for less and he always keeps his big heart.”
