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.
