I am a 33 year old single mother with MS. My son is 4 years old and will not listen when he comes back from his daddys house. about the time i get him straightened out hes going over there again. Comes back hitting, spitting, cussing, telling me no, wont go to bed on the schedule i have him on, and just absolutly wild. By the end of the day I am so tired of fussing punishing and yelling that all I can do at times is cry. I absolutly love my son and will do anything in this world for him but this is getting out of hand. Any help is gladly appreciated.. please.....

I have many friends that say the SAME thing after there kids come back from a visit...
I think the non custodial parent lets the kids get away with more than the parent that has them more time.
Have you tried to talk to the dad?
Maybe you can ask if he can keep him on your schedule...
If your son is naughty when he gets home,you can try saying "In this house,that is NOT OK to hit,spit..etc"
It is hard,keep trying momma :)

If he comes back cussing, then it is likely that he is learning that from his dad. I would consider contacting the lawyer who handles your custody/visitation arrangements and express your concerns. I have no idea if anything can be done, but your lawyer would know.
