12 year old : Sibling Jealousy


My 10 yo has many friends, does well in school, well in sports, rarely gets in trouble. On the other hand, my 12 yo has limited friends, doesn't do well in school, stinks at sports and always makes the wrong decisions. This in turn has caused him to be extremely jealous of the 10 yo, and he treats him poorly b/c he is so envious of him. The 10 yo does have a great life due to the great decisions he makes and how kind and calm he is. How do we handle this? I would really love for him to be supportive of his 10 yo brother, instead of envious. The 12 yo constantly says we favor the 10 yo. Help!
