It sounds to me that he knows what gets your attention. He knows that if he does it then you will be over there quickly. If you can, put what he is getting into up. When my children were that age everything three feet above the floor was theirs. All the shelves and stuff. This way I didnt have to constantly go after them for touching stuff. We could play nicely together without the constant punishment, therefore got more positive attention. Alot of people will say that they will not learn this way (including my mom) but my children are 4 and six now and stay out of what is not theirs. I have a huge book shelf full of books they they never touch. I think it just makes for a more pleasent house.

I just locked up every thing. Or put things up where my kids couldn't reach them. Tell they were old enough to understand.
