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.

"Just a couple of pics of me shirtless as I noticed some of the other fellows had the same.  Hope that's okay.  I love to go shirtless but it is still hard for me to do so at times as I am a bit overweight."

"I didn't know what CERT was, so thanks for filling me in.But as far as bugging out and community go, let's suppose you needed to leave town and could stay with a friend or relative. To me that is a form of community."

"Indeed.  And exciting new subject for the facade that is "Josh Allen" to try to troll us all with, and for everyone to mock the character in return."
