3 1/2 year old son doesn't listen

My 3 1/2 year old son has no hearing difficulties to speak of, but he ignores me when I ask him questions or tell him to do something. I know that he hears me and is choosing to ignore me. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve this or appropriate consequences for when he ignores me? I'm getting very frustrated!

My son has selective hearing too!!!!! If he ignore me when he is watching tv, I turn it off and talk to him until he responds to me and the same when he is playing, i take the toy away util he responds. I also make sure that when I ask him a question he is looking at me so he knows that I am speaking to him.....it's very frustrating at times and you feel as though you're talking to a brick wall!!!!!!
