Chrissy Teigen has rallied moms together in the only way she knows how: by asking them to share their parenting war stories.

After having a "rough day," the 31-year-old model — who is a mom to a 16-month-old daughter — turned to Twitter to find some comfort.

After asking fellow parents on Twitter to share examples of when their kids were mean to them, the internet delivered. While some stories were downright awful...

Others made it hard to keep a straight face.

In solidarity, Teigen responded to some of the tweets, sympathizing with their pain and trials.

According to New York psychotherapist Sean Grover, it's normal for kids to be mean to their parents sometimes.

"Kids always go through test periods where they really want more power ... than they can manage," he told Today.com. "If they grew up with good structure, limits and boundaries, they're better able to contain frustration and talk, rather than act."

By bringing parents together to share their war stories, Teigen proved the internet can be a wonderful and powerful thing.

The 31-year-old has always been open about her parenting struggles. Previously, she's not only spoken out about mommy shaming, but also about how she's prepping for IVF and her experience with postpartum depression.

In a recent joint interview with Us Weekly, Teigen and her hubby John Legend opened up about what it was like when Teigen was at the height of her postpartum depression.

I lost all interest in everything. I couldn't get out of bed.

"I lost all interest in everything," the model recalled. "I couldn't get out of bed. I kept all my pajamas in the pantry because I didn't want to go upstairs."

"It's a struggle to be a good partner and help," Legend added. "I think the key for us was finally understanding what was happening and getting help."
