It's a good idea to lurk for awhile before posting so you can get a feel for the board dynamics. We truly do welcome new people but it's always a good idea to figure out if this is a good fit for you before joining in.
I don't go here, but found some of the recent threads, that I think have prompted this one, via CEP. I would suggest taking a look at the articles in the reading list rugbywife and @kirkette posted in another thread, as a reference (c&p below). And/or do some lurking and reading on CEP as well.
(hat tip rugbywife and kirkette for these lists, and no exclusion intended for references shared by others - these were two that caught my eye personally, and ones I wanted to bookmark for my reference. Bottom line, if you look around these boards, we have a wealth of resources at our fingertips to learn and expand our perspectives - so easy to take advantage of this opportunity.)
