How to discuss ADHD with 5yo sibling?


Looking for some advice/tips on how to discuss ADHD with my non-ADHD 5 yo son. I think he's having some jealousy issues, as well as is the brunt of some of the impulsive behaviors and poor behaviors of his brother. I'd like to be able to have an open conversation with him about what ADHD is, why his brother sometimes has meltdowns, why mommy and daddy give him some extra attention, and why it's not ok to repeat some of his behaviors, language, words, etc. Anyone have any advice or tips they'd be willing to share with me? Thanks in advance!
