These awesome families on TikTok are guaranteed to brighten your day and even provide some life lessons.
TikTok during the pandemic has evolved from a platform for teens and young millennials to showcase their dancing talent to one that features their parents and family members sharing funny — and sometimes touching — life moments.
As moms, dads, kids and even the family dog have gotten in on the action, #family has surpassed the 80 billion views mark. With the summer break coming, TikTok families everywhere will undoubtedly amp up their activity even more.
While my teen has roped me into a dance challenge or two, I prefer to leave it to others to supply the instant laughs and entertainment. From a comical father-daughter duo who loves car karaoke to a family of six singing superstars, I've rounded up some of the best TikTok families to follow right now. So keep scrolling down to find out who made the list.
1. The Holderness Family
Kim and Penn Holderness and their kids from North Carolina shot to fame on social media thanks to their #Xmas Jammies video that has more than 15 million views. The Holderness Family now creates hilarious video spoofs and singing parodies about every aspect of parenting you can imagine. Not only will each 15-second clip make you laugh your head off, they also show that we're all in the same boat when it comes to parenting.
2. The Kabs Family
The Kabs Family is a British TikTok family with an impressive 1.4 million followers. Their popular videos offer a mix of comedy sketches, challenges and my favorite — car karaoke. There's nothing cuter than watching adorable toddler Maliya singing or sometimes telling dad Tay Kabs what's what — and his bemused reactions.
Team2Moms is a multicultural family with three lively kids who create funny clips, dances and challenges that provide endless entertainment. Ebony, Denise and their youngsters have a huge following on TikTok and use the platform to inspire other LGBTQ parents.

This singing family of six is a powerhouse of talent. The videos on their hit TikTok channel showcase their vocals and include plenty of TikTok challenges with hilarious results. The SharpeFamilySingers also happen to have their own live show, which they perform at venues across the U.S., and have released an album. Daughter Samantha Sharpe also competed on "American Idol."
It will be hard not to fall in love with dads Sean Gannon and Spencer Parker and their three beautiful, young children who make up Daddyseang. This TikTok family's mission is to spread love and positivity, and inspire the LGBTQ community through uplifting vlogs with lots of singing and silliness.
Joe Mele, who started his TikTok channel Mmmjoemele in 2019, now boasts a whopping 13 million followers. His rapid rise up the social media ladder is thanks to the goofy videos featuring his dad, Frank, who is the victim of a multitude of pranks and jokes.
If you're looking for ideas for your kids' lunch boxes, you'll love Sulheejessica — Jessica Woo (aka Bento Box Mom) and her angelic-looking crew of three children. They share fun videos of easy bento box creations for picky eaters, as well as summer vacation vlogs and other family-friendly content.
