I think my son doesn't like me

My son is 3.5yrs old and a very smart individual. He picks up on anything and everything but that is typical of all kiddos. My problem is he is so angry or something (still trying to figure that part out) to me. He is a handful for Dad too but nothing compared to how he is with me. Now if it is for anyone else he is just great, I've heard this is normal. So here is the thing with my son. He is a whiner, again only with me. He whines for something to drink, eat, to use the potty, for a toy, etc. Instead of asking me he whines for it or he uses a Whaaa as in baby talk when he wants my attention. He is potty trained for about 2 months now with no accidents, he does wear a pull up at night because he hasn't mastered that part of it yet but no problems during the day and hasn't been since the first week of training. Now.. he does #2 in his underwear and just started peeing in his trash can in his bathroom. It feels like he does this just to make me angry and of course it works. There is so much more to the way he behaves but I'm not getting into that right now.

I have lost all patience with my son and I feel so bad about it. I am at my wits end, I'm completely lost and I don't know what to do with him. He makes me feel like I'm such a bad Mom because he only does this kind of stuff with me. I have tried to take toys away, spankings, time outs, I've tried it all. Recently I started putting him in his room and having him sit there for a few minutes for me to calm down than I try to talk to him. He understands why I am upset but can't give me a reason for why he is doing or acting the way he is. He is still young and I understand that but I just don't know what to do anymore. I am home with him all day and than at work at night, 2 days a week he goes to daycare and loves it there. I give him love and attention but I just don't know if its enough.

Any suggestions?

Sorry ur having such a hard time but I have heard that they lash out at the ones they love the most because he's most comfterble with you to be himself witch is now fun for us but that just means he feels safe to be himself with you and the pooping in his pants my girl did the same thing it's scary for them she always would run to her room and before I new it she had pooped so I had to start over n let her run around with no pants so if she had to go poop she had no choice but to sit on the potty and then I maid a big deal and she got to put a sticker on the calander every time she pooped in the potty and 2 candies every time now she's fully trained took her 1.5 months and she was completely trained just gotta stop all liquid at night last drink is around super so she couldn't have n accident but don't be upset if they have the odd accident it does happen I hope this helps best of luck
