Any suggestions on books about parenting, I know there are a lot of books about children up to year 1 but what about books for children 2 and up and how to raise them, discipline, child development etc.

I used 1 2 3 Magic, and it was a good book for us. Basic premise is that they will ditch unacceptable behavior through repetition and prompts. Its a calm way of approaching misbehavior and consequences.

What to Expect the Toddler Years, was good.

I really enjoyed Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters by Meg Meeker.  A lot of it applies to boys as well, though obviously it is most applicable to girls.  Dr. Meeker wrote a companion book for boys too (Boys Should Be Boys) but I didn't find that as helpful.

"I alter them myself. The problem is that you cannot alter a shirt's shoulders. I usually am able to find shirts which fit, and have a great wardrobe. It's just an issue for work shirts or other shirts which do not have an athletic fit."

"Have you tried tailored shirts?  Or taking shirts you buy and having them altered?  Alterations aren't as expensive as you'd think they are, and you'll get a much cleaner fit, which will make your frame look even better."

Question on Shoulders/Shirt Fit

Tell me if what I am noticing is a real phenomenon, or just me:I've been lifting for about two years, and there is muscular growth around my chest, biceps, and triceps. This has affected how my shirts fit, and I've needed to give away many of my old t-shirts and dress shirts. However, I am not sure what's happening with shirts with regard to the shoulder seam.That seam where the sleeve connects with the torso of the shirt should be at the top of your arm, not down your arm.
