My son is 3 years old he has a really bad temper he will start screaming at us if we don't let him have his way. Or will even just hit his sister because he's mad and throw stuff around. I've tried talking to him even popping him and he doesn't seem to care. Any advise that I could get to do better. Oh he also goes to a babysitter and he is a completely different person

Thank you Karen I will try this. Because I do try to talk to him and explain that what he's doing isn't okay when he's calm. But he just walks to me and hugs me and tells me he loves me Everytime he acts like that

I've talked to the babysitter she says that he does mean mug them and tries to act out but he calms down on his own. And I've done what she tells me like no candy or certain stuff if he acts out and that don't seem to work with me

Don't give in to his tantrums as that just teaches him that if he makes enough noise he will eventually get what he wants.
Ignore him when he is having his tantrums as well. They want attention at this age and don't care if it's for good or bad behaviour.
You need to be consistent and firm. You may have to sit on the floor with him and just hold him until he calms down so he doesn't hurt others but don't say too much, just hold him.
You need to stay calm and let him know that he won't get what he wants when he is acting out like that. You need to modify the way he behaves when told no.
