My 3 year old has got were he don't listen to anyone, discipline isn't even phasing him.. He is also always hit, kicking, or biting my 2 year old step-son and even hit my 4 month old with a hairbrush. I need help and advice to deal with my out of control 3 year old.

have you tried positive reinforcement and behavior charts? 

how much one-on-one time is he getting with you and dad (together and separately)? 

it sounds like he's acting out for attention but if you think it goes above and beyond typical 3 year old boundary-testing, call your pedi.

I think it has a lot to do with the fact in just began seeing his real dad through visitation after his father not seeing him for a year..

Sounds like he's developed some anger issues abotu this situation and a therapist could help him understand his anger and how to control it properly

i agree.  i would look into someone for him to "talk" to.  a good therapist will not only work with him but give you tools to manage his outbursts.  good luck!

How do you react when he does these things? Are you calm and in control, or do you get flustered or angry sometimes? Often kids do things like that for attention, positive or negative. If you stay calm and ignore him, while removing the other kids from the dangerous situation, that might help.
