For the biting try soap in the mouth or peanut butter and tabasco sauce on a piece of bread. ignore the scream turn your back and just walk away if he follows you just keep walking don't say anything don't even look at him. when he kicks you nose to the fridge

If the hitting, biting and screaming has gotten to the point where you would seriously consider feeding him Tabasco sauce, PLEASE go talk to your pediatrician first. There are physical and behavioral intervention techniques that you can be taught and which will not cause physical pain to your son, to you, or to anyone else around him. Try using time-out, and other non-physical methods of dealing with his aggression first. When children are overly aggressive, treating the issue with more aggression only escalates and exacerbates the issue. PLEASE do not feed your son Tabasco sauce. That is punitive and borderline abusive.

I have to agree with Moonrush on this one. Do not feed your child Tabasco sauce or wash his mouth out with soap. That is not teaching him anything.
Three year old children usually react very well to redirection, time outs and positive rewards for good behavior. The more positive discipline you can do at a young age, the less problems you will have with your child as he gets older. With any type of physical punishment there comes a time when children become too big to disciple in that manner. If you have used these punishments when they are little, then when the get big what are you going to do? It is better just to start out with another form of behavior modification.
