I'm getting married in a few months, and will be a stay at home wife (ie: someone with time on her hands) for the next year or so until our first child is born. I'm looking for ways that I can best use this time to prepare myself for parenting and homeschooling. I'm not as well educated as I'd like to be. I had a very poor schooling experience and stopped paying attention all together around age 14. Most of what I've learned has been self taught, 'as needed' and there are gaps in my education. So perhaps I should focus on learning before I attempt to start teaching? We're intending to have many children, so parenting, homeschooling, and housekeeping will be my full time job for decades to come. It seems to be a good idea for me to use this free time wisely while I still have it to make things go better later on when I'm short on time. I'd also like to know which parenting method (if you use a particular one) you prefer and why. What would you suggest I invest this time in to best prepare myself?
