the strike zone is wherever the umpire says
In little league like the majors when bunting and you miss the pitch it is a strike. It depends on the umpire; if he thinks the batter offered at the pitch, he will call the strike. Simply holding the bat in the strike zone is not offering at the pitch unless the umpire decides that. It is a safer bet to teach your batters to pull the bat out of the strike zone if they decide to not bunt at the pitch.

When batting you have to adjust your strike zone to the count. When you have three balls, you need the absolutely perfect pitch to swing at it. However, if you have 2 strikes on you, you need to protect the plate and swing at anything close. These are the extremes, say you have a 1-2 count - you have a pretty wide strike zone. If you have a 2-1 count your strike zone is a little tighter than when you started out.

In actual practice, however, umpires consider the waist to be the top of the strike zone. This changed a little bit a few years ago, when the MLB "reminded" the umpires what the "official" strike zone was, but still, very few umpires are going to call a chest-high pitch a strike.

Umpires do not decide or announce changes in the strike zone, that is determined by the MLB Rules Committee. The last such change by the committee was in 1996, when the lower limit of the strike zone was changed from the top of the knees to the bottom of the knees. Umpires simply call the strike zone on what THEY PERCEIVE as the size of the zone in the rules in effect at the time.
