No simple answer : It’s unusual for 3 y olds to become rebellious without reason, needs to see a child psychiatrist or behavioral pediatrician. Family history, what happened during pregnancy and child birth as well as current development milestones in the current living environment influence behavior. Try a simple book called 1-2-3 Magic for basic behavior modification techniques
