Toddler Tantrums and Disrespect

Question

My three-year-old is extremely disrespectful, yells, "Noooooo!" says, "I can't," when told to clean up toys, and will kick and bang on the back of his bedroom door when placed in time out.

I think we have done an ok job at trying to be consistent and require good manners, but all efforts are failing. He is truly out of control and we need help. It's getting really bad, and its starting to worry me.

Please, any advice beyond "give him a three minute time out" would be appreciated. Where are we failing? What can we do with a three-year-old who is draining us?
