Thermodynamics is focused on the transfer of heat or energy in a reaction, focusing primarily on the beginning and ends of the state of a reaction while kinetics is focused on the actual speed of the process taken to get to that reaction.
So if a product forms when the temperature is high, it is controlled by thermodynamics; if another product forms when the temperature is low, it is controlled by kinetics since it has a relatively low activation ennergy.
