I have two dc, dd1 6.5 yrs and dd2 4.5 yrs. They are usually great playmates... I have been very lucky. They were together FT until a few months ago when dd1 started FT 1st gr and dd2 in preschool (we hsed prior to this). They still play well together and share a bedroom, so really when they are home, they are stuck together like glue. I don't want to get in the way of their relationship. dd1 comes home moody sometimes and takes it out on dd2. Also dd1 has become much more bossy and manipulative with dd2.  I think after 6 hrs of being told what to do at school she likes to come home and "play school" with dd2 and she wants nothing to do with it. Then dd2 gets frustrated that dd1 is not listening to her "NO" .... what can I do do help them stay close?
