I agree with what Michelle said about taking a deep breath and letting it out.
The more wound up you get the worse your son will behave. If you have no control over the situation your childs behavour will escalate and will have a knock on effect on how your youngest child behaves.
Definately pick your battles, some things are just really not worth the fight.
If you think its more a defience issue, you need to stay strong and not back down.
Don't argue with him. He's 3, you're the one that is in charge not him.
Have you been to a doctor about his behaviour?? They may be able to give you techniques to learn how to deal with your son in a different way.
Diet plays a part in how kids behave and well as sleep issues and even boredom.
What you see as ADHD could be something totally different and have a really easy fix.
My son was diagnosed a year ago. He is now 4 1/2. The doctors explored every aspect of our lifestyle and diets before hewas given a final diagnois.

Check out the feingold diet this helps with many toddlers to get them leveled out, also you can try a herbal thing called quietude here is the link http://www.nationalnutrition.ca/detail.a... it is basically chamomille but in a small liquid form it really helps my daughter to slow down and have a less whirl wind day. I do have a child with adhd so I do know how hard they can be. Stop take a deep breath and let it out. choose your battles as everything will become a battle after awhile.
