how to get my 3 year old to stop screaming like a baby when things dont go his way

Ignore him. Take something away when he does it. Tell him he can scream all he wants but he has to do it where it won't bother you and send him to his room. Record him and play it back for him when he is calm, showing him how silly he looks. Do the same thing to him when he asks you to do something. Or any other of a number of things that make it clear that screaming does not help him get what he wants.

One thing you should never, ever do is give in when he does it. He needs to learn that it does not work.
