    The oldest are usually entitled to more and are treated more maturely as they grow up.

    Example; here you can get your license at 16. The 11 year old child might be jealous that their sibling gets to drive a car and they can't.

    I only see this envy if the younger child gets a disproportionate amount of attention after being a baby or the older child is assigned chores and tasks to help with the younger child without commensurate rewards or recognition.
    In short, if you give them extra work but not extra privileges or neglect them because you think the younger one needs all the time and attention.
