3 yr Old Seriously Fresh Lil Boy

My 3yr old is over the moon fresh beyond words. Talks back and will even swing. A smack will not phase him and will only occasionally just hurt his feelings. My 10yr old was the total opposite with behavior as he was always very sweet. The 3yr old has his moments and will tend to listen to his father more so over me. I believe it is due to the firmness in his voice as well as the fact as he is with him every day. (He works nights and I work days). He refuses to potty train but when he does, this behavior makes me nervous for when he starts going to pre-k as he is more than ready.

I need help. How can we stop this behavior. Time outs do not deter him as he starts right back up. Threats with follow through just seem to fuel him even more. And he is only just 3!

Any and all suggestions and real life experiences please!!
