Moving is a big deal for a family—it’s an opportunity for a fresh start with new, exciting places to explore. But your kids might not see it this way. With the social lives of children and teens so deeply involved in their friendships and their schools, moving can often be a difficult process. To avoid these feelings of resentment, it’s important to make sure all members of your family are as comfortable with the idea of moving as possible.
A little encouragement goes a long way for kids. Get them excited for the move by checking out areas that they might find fun around your new residence and get them used to their new surroundings by asking them to do some research on restaurants to have a family dinner or places to go. Be sure to keep your kids informed of developments and what’s going on as confusion can often cause frustration with the move.
One of the most important things to consider when moving with children is to make sure they feel involved. Let them help with labeling boxes, or if capable, allow them to have the independence to pack their own belongings away. This gives kids the feeling as if they have some kind of control during a time in which many things happening are not.
Moving with kids is tough, but with a little time and consideration you can make the relocation process easier and comfortable for both you and your children.
