Sounds like a major case of jealousy. I would just try to ensure that he knows he is loved. Maybe have a little one on one time with his favorite adult. I would flat out ask him during a quiet time when he is not upset. Make sure what ever he says do not judge just nod and let him say it all. Then ask him what he feels would make him feel better. He is 11 old enough to be able to express himself with a little prodding. I know my little sister and I fought like cats and dogs until after I moved out. It was jealousy. I was jealousy of her getting the youngest perks and she was jealous of my older sister and I leaving her out.
