Every week we have to fill out this paper saying what our strengths and needs are as a family and then we turn that in at our next class. I'm having a difficult time with it. I honestly can't think of many needs. I know we much have them, but I just can't think of them. Did any of you have to do this? Did you just make up stuff or did you know them right away?
Wow, every week!?!?! That would have been hard. We only had to answer a question like that once for our home study. To me, those types of questions are the hardest because of course, you want to answer them honestly, but then again, you don't want to say something that isn't going to reflect well on your family.
I say just be honest, and it you can't think of any, then just write that. Good luck!
Hm, we never had to answer that one. My needs are often just basic - safe shelter and home base to return to, good food and drink, flexible ideas to plan where I'm going and what I'm doing, some free time to myself, some time to enjoy my loved ones, some time to get things done around the house. Do they want more specific stuff?

Yeah, it is more like weaknesses, you know. Like we had one about communication last week. My strength is that my DH and I are really good about talking with each other about things instead of just being angry. We let each other know how we feel and we make sure to take time to listen to one another. My need was that I like to debate and find myself taking an opposite side just to have a debate when it really isn't necessary. Stuff like that.
This week we talked about having children placed in our home who have dealt with major issues (abuse, death, etc.) and how to handle those situations. Now we are to answer what a strength of our family is on this type issue and what a need is.
It is hard. I think I am going to write "I don't know anymore needs." on some of them. LOL. They want to help us with our needs... help us develop them into strengths... which is great. But it is hard to think of some that I really need.
