Not everyone has jock gene

DEAR CAROLYN: My two sons, 13 and 9, love to play sports, with me and with each other, and I love that too. Despite being much younger and smaller, the 9-year-old routinely whips his big brother in driveway basketball, sprints past him in footraces and easily belts baseballs over the fence while his big brother strikes out. The 13-year-old gets upset and is starting to develop “take my ball and go home” tendencies, which I don’t want to encourage. Any thoughts on how I can work on this?
