Ugh, mine is doing this too. I don't think distraction is the best way to deal with it, give her one on one attention and solid boundaries and I think that will work better. More tantrums, but happier kid and parents in between times. :)
For my son, when he refuses to obey I remove him from the situation and I hold him on my lap and force him to stay there until he's calmer. I can tell on the days when I haven't been touching him enough and having good quality time with him, he acts up just so that I will hold him, it seems like.

Yup. Sounds like a typical 3 year old. It is not about distraction, but giving the right kind of attention. Also, they are learning how to push buttons and take things to a whole new level. Good luck. You will survive. I am in the middle of this myself. Little buttheads.
