"Real" Family Values

What are some things that you could never live without?   You might say food, water, shelter, or clothing.   Other, less conventional, answers might include a cell phone, lip gloss, or Starbuck's coffee.   However, according to psychologist Abraham H. Maslow, all people need belongingness, esteem, and self-actualization.   Carol Shields sustained that family values include qualities such as nurturing caring, and emotional support in her essay entitled Family Is One of the Few Certainties We Will Take with Us Far into the Future.   I agree with Shields that these family values are important because they provide sources of belongingness, esteem and self-actualization that are basic needs for life.
