Welcome to Seasons of Parenting’s new Web Recommendations feature. Today’s site offers a WEALTH of free motivational and educational resources for home, school and work. Here’s a sample for anyone helping reframe a problem.

feedback-vs-feedforwardI found this site today while researching home school charters and metacognition — simply put, how to help yourself think. (Education geek or dedicated professional, you tell me!)

Here’s a helpful poster for parents guiding kids into the new school year. It shows how to focus thinking before, during, and after homework and projects in order to be efficient and successful.

Other articles and the related posters/flyers are dedicated to healthful sleep and study, motivation and stress, creativity and change, how the teenage brain works, successful note taking, and many more topics including one fascinating article on girls and “impostor syndrome.” Curious? Here’s that site.

I’m such a fan of Mountain Rose Herbs. It seemed like I went from being a young 50-something to an old 60-year-old overnight. It was time to make some changes. Along with MRH’s candles, spices, oils, and more is a line of bulk organic herbs for excellent teas — infusions (soft leaves) and decoctions (harder twigs, berries, etc.) I’m currently learning about and very much enjoying herbs to calm, strengthen, and purify. Here’s where to find them.
