Students hate being compared to other students.
This is especially true if you are comparing students to their siblings. Whatever you do, don't make comments about how great or terrible a sibling was (either in behavior or performance).
Siblings can be very different, both in ability and personality.
Give your students a chance to start your class with a clean slate.
