Put breakable things away. Put mail out of reach.
He's obviously a VERY energetic kitty - though he will mellow with age, you've got to get there.
Play with him as much as you can - I'd say at LEAST half an hour in the morning and as many hours at night as you can to help use up that energy. Get a laser light - hopefully he goes for that.
We've never had success with water. We hiss at them, blow a short, sharp puff of air directly in their face and say "No" firmly. If they're up on something we don't want them to be, we hiss, blow in their face, and say "No" as we're setting them down (and then we walk away). It's a language they understand and one their mom would use. It may not stop the activity at first, but he will learn VERY quickly what the word "No" means and he'll learn that bad behavior gets him ignored. But you must be consistent about it.
You may also want to consider getting an air can. Do NOT blow that air in his face - it will freeze his face. Just use it NEAR him - make sure the air is NOT pointing at him. But the sound will startle him.
The problem with cats is that as Momofmany so frequently points out, they're all about "what's in it for me?"
That is just SO true. So you may also want to work on "redirection." The laser toy is great for this, and that's why I suggest you use up as much of that energy as you can in directed play.
Also, it's important for kitties - just like children - to understand what you want them to do as much as it is important for them to understand what we don't want them to do. So praise him to high heaven for playing appropriately or whenever he's being a good kitty.
Cats can get bored very easily with their toys. Make sure you only put a few out at a time, and rotate them frequently. We take toys out of circulation for at least a week, and usually two.
Look into interactive toys that will grab his attention.
The Cat Dancer Compleat (you attach to a wall or a bookcase or something) is a good one: http://www.catdancer.com/products.htm
. We've never tried the mouse in the house - but for a kitten, that could be a good one.
Try the Peek-a-Play box or the Tick Tock Teaser here: http://www.esmartcat.com/
This is an advanced version of the ball in the ring: http://www.cattoys.com/mousecattoys.html
Buy one of those motorized toys that rolls around weirdly and buzzes - and stick it in a paper bag that you then fold over a couple of times to close it and put it on its side.
If he likes to jump and climb, consider a cat tree (or a couple of cat trees)/condos - and check out this stuff:http://www.iroquoisinnovations.com/http://www.wallcats.com/http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/off-...e-by-burdworks
