  • *a half sibling is when they share only ONE parent ex: same mom but different dads or vice versa.
    *a step sibling is when bio mom or dad marry someone else who has kids also. the kids from the non bio parent are step siblings and the non bio parent is a step parent.

  • see this is what i'm getting at my step kids mum as 4 kids to 3 dif dads and me and dh have 2 sons together . people will say there brother and sister when there talking about bm kids and say half  about my 2 . or they will say half about the mum kids and my boys are steps  and yes i had people tell me there only half if they got the same mum ! if there the same dad there steps the thing is it would totally not bother me if the 2 step kids lived with there mum and only seen my boys at week ends but they don't even see there mum . my kids do not use the half word when it comes to my 2 or the older sister of the mum who lives with her gran .  i don't think the kids need to know about them titles it just bothers me what other adults say it . it make me sad that people a kid less of a brother or sister if there the dads kids than they do of a mum's kids

  • Full Sibling is a sibling who shares both the biological mother and father with you.
    Half Sibling is a sibling who only shares one biological parent with you.
    Step Sibling is a sibling that shares no biological parents with you, such as an adopted sibling.
