Moving to a new neighborhood and starting a new school can be a difficult time for your children. Making the transition as smooth as possible is important to help your kids adapt to their new lives. Make the process fun and stress-free, and check out these 5 tips for moving with kids.
Tell your children why you’re moving and how their life will be better in a new home. Focus on the positives to shed some light on the situation.
Keep Them Involved
Take them to open houses and ask them what they like about each house. You could have them vote for their favorite home and show them which room would be theirs if you were to move.
Plan A Trip
Take a day or weekend to visit your old town and plan a playdate with your kids and their old friends. Be sure to mention that just because you’re all moving, it doesn’t mean they won’t be able to keep in touch with their friends.
Tour The Neighborhood
Drive by their school and any parks to get your children familiar with the area before the move.
Let Them Decorate
Let your kids pick out a new color for their bedroom walls or new bedding. Having them choose the new decor for their room can get them excited about moving and make the process more enjoyable.
