Don't say "No" and just redirect him. Talk quietly and calmly. Give him comfort and let him sit on your lap while you talk to him. This is average behavior for a 3 year old & they test the limits. If you yell or hit, it just will make it worse. His bad behavior may be compounded because of his Dad leaving and he senses your upset & stress. Even if you have to pretend, make it like you are very happy. Kids feed off of our emotions. This too shall pass so make the best of it & it's not worth stressing yourself out more. If you have to, go in the bathroom & close the door for a few minutes to de stress. GL :)
