Back on the subject of the squat form, if you can wiggle you toes in your shoes when you are at the lowest position of the squat, you know your knees are in proper alignment. A ball wall squat is a good way to keep your chest up, but if you don't have a ball you can do a wall squat leaning directly on the wall.
Also, when I am teaching a squat, I have the person stand in front of a chair, feet lined up with the chair legs, then I have them sit back into the chair and stop just before their seat touches the chair. This is the proper form for a squat. (Then at that low point see if you can wiggle your toes in your shoes.) Then you know your weight is in the heels where it belongs and your knees are not jutting out over your toes.

"There is no such thing as destiny, only different choices. Some choices are easy. Some aren't. Those are the important one; the ones that define us as people." Quote from the movie 23.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.’” (C.S. Lewis)
