Got a friend asking for gender-neutral words that might replace "sister" or "brother". They want something they could use in the context of talking to teachers or similar about their children, so not super jokey, but also "subling" strikes them as feeling pretty clinical. They cited "nibling" as feeling right tone-wise (but describing a different relationship, obviously). Children in question are teens.

What d'yall got by way of advice? :boosts_ok:
