I'm Not Your Friend

Question

My four year old has been telling her younger sister who is three that she will not play with her, be her best friend, etc. if she doesn’t play the way she wants or gives her the toy she is wanting. We have addressed this by telling the four year old she is not allowed to play that way and we do not allow them to play together after this happens. Is this the right thing to do?
