He is seeking attention from you. It is normal for older siblings to behave like this as they feel a little jealous that they are not the only ones in your life. So please make it a point to spend one hour a day exclusively for him. Take him out. Make him understand. Give him importance as the older brother. Give him some responsibility too. Praise him whenever someone talks bout the younger one so that he will feel important. These will help you in the near future Here are a few tips which would help you. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/5-ways-to-handle-sibling-rivalry-effectively/750 https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/uniqueness-of-a-sibling-bonding/1186 All the best and do keep us posted.
