my 3yr old son listens to everyone else but mommy

i have a 3yr old son (just turned 3 sept 23 2011) and now he wont listen to me, his mommy. he is great for everyone else and listens to everyone else but with me its as if whatever i say doesnt matter. im with him all day every day except a few nights during week. he screams and throws fits puts me at my breaking point and i usually have a good temper. i dont know if its because he spends to much time with me if im too leniant with him or what. we live with my mother and every night she criticizes me for how my son doesnt listen and how yelling at him doesnt do anything. but he just wont listen to me. he was fine when he turned 2 but all of a sudden he wont listen, ever. i tell him to not go outside and he walks right out the door i tell him not to play with things and 2 sec later hes playing with them. PLEASE HELP! my mom doesnt make it any better so i really need to talk to other moms who have a child around same age or know about this more. PLEASE!!

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
It is quite clear that the child is being influenced by your mother. I would suggest you make a list of things he enjoys doing, and try and incorporate them in your time with him. If you are not there with him some nights—this should not matter because he is asleep then, but you may be tired the next day, sleepy, and hence more irritable. Instead of commanding him, try a new technique of asking him things by giving options that you find acceptable for a particular situation. Praise him, hug him, show signs of love, and hope things will improve. Also talk to his pediatrician who can also provide some insight.
Take care!
