Tips For Moving Children
Tips for Moving with Children Moving to a new community
may be one of the most stress-producing experiences a family faces. Frequent moves or even a single move can be especially hard on children and adolescents. Moves are even more difficult if accompanied by other significant changes in the child’s life, such as a death, divorce, loss of family income, or a need to change schools.
Get Started With a Free Estimate!
To make the move easier on children, the following may be helpful:
Explain clearly to the children why the move is necessary.
Allow the children to sort thru their belongings to determine things that could be donated or disposed of.
Help them create their own moving survival kit filled with things they will need during and soon after the move.
Familiarize the children as much as possible with the new location, schools, parks, etc.
Describe advantages of the new location that the child might appreciate such as lakes, mountains, or amusement parks.
Let children participate in designing or furnishing their new room.
After the move, get involved with the children in activities of the local church or synagogue, PTA, Scouts, YMCA, etc.
Help children keep in touch with friends from the previous neighborhood through phone & social media.
