We are about to have our homestudy interview next week. I have read the internet and gotten the general gist of the questions but for those of you who have been through it, was there any one thing that threw you for a loop? I know it won't be so bad but still really worried.
Someone else had suggested to me that I should chat with the worker like we were good friends and that was about we did. We made sure to offer refreshments, thank her for her time, welcome her in, laugh with her, and ask any questions. The lady who did our home study was wonderful. We were asked about everything from our childhoods, our parents, how we got along with our siblings, how we did at school, what our hobbies were as kids, whether our parents used corporal punishment, what we think about using corporal punishment, if we had anger management issues, if we had issues with drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc., if we had support from friends and family, how we felt our families, friends, and little one would react to the new child, if we'd ever been abused, if we ever faced a crisis, if we ever had mental illnesses, etc. Basically expect to be asked every little detail about your life. Unless you have a past history of run-ins with the police, mental illnesses, abuse, or addictions, and can be totally honest, I wouldn't be worried at all. And even then, I pointed out I'm on Celexa for PPD and had no issues.
