How do I get my son to stop this!!!

He is 6 and his sister is 3. He mothers her in a bad way. He is constantly screaming corrections at her. 'NO! YOU'RE SAYING IT WRONG!' 'WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING WITH PUT THAT BACK!' He is a tougher mom than I am! It is getting on my nerves. It is CONSTANT. all the time over something. Anything from 'Don't touch that toy!' to 'why did you bump your head!' He has mild PDD-NOS does that have anything to do with it?
