ok this is question for one of my best friends son. She has three year old and he doesnt respect his mom or anyone else. He has been kicked out of every daycare that his mom has put him in with and he has been known to punch a ful grown man and hit the teachers if he doesnt get his way. His father is out of the picture because he was abusive and mom left him but his dads bad habits are rubbing off on him.This little boy can be so sweet one minute and then he like the devil. My son doesnt even act like that and they are close in age. Elijah will be 4 in May and we have tried everything like time outs, standing in a corner, restraining when he is violent and he also yells at the top of his lungs for no reason. He is so bad that nobody will watch the boy not even his grandparents cause nobody can handle him. Its now that he is stealing things from his mom and even money and then he lies about it. I need all of the advise.Answer Question

Believe it or not I know exactly what she is going through. My middle son who is now 5 soon to be 6 has been like this for awhile. The only real difference is that his dad is still here and he's not abusive. No form of discipline seems to work on him. I've talked till I was blue in the face with doctors and therapists. FINALLY i got a doctor to LISTEN to me. Now he is being tested to see if he has Asperger's Syndrome. I'm not saying that is what is wrong with your friend's son but this is not normal behavior for a 3 yr old. What I have found that works the best with my son is routine. We do the same stuff at the same time everyday. If there is something that is going to be coming up that is different we talk to him about it everyday and have a countdown calender set up. It has helped a lot. Make sure he is praised A LOT for the good behavior.
I hope the best for her and him. Good Luck!
