I have a 3.5 year old boy and a 7 month old girl. My son loves his baby sister. Before she was born he was destructive. He would find a way to pop the lock on the fridge to get food, attempt to make mac and cheese on the floor, and more recently, he has been urinating in his room, breaking eggs, climbing to reach unattainable cabinets, and more. I've timed him out, not let him out of my sight for longer than 5 minutes, and even spanked or yelled at him. Nothing works. He understands that he is doing wrong, but it does not phase him. He also does a lot of this stuff in the middle of the night after he gets up to pee.
His father is not around much and he is lucky to see him once or twice each month. My husband has been in his life since he was five months old and takes care of him, plays games, and more. He is in 3-4 yr old preschool.
