Moving can be tough on kids, but there are things you can do to make for a smoother transition. First, don’t wait to talk to your children about moving. Tell the kids as soon as possible so they can get used to the idea of moving to a new place.
Welcome all questions about the move so you can help your child feel comfortable. Even if you can’t answer all their questions, the talk can give you an idea about how your child is feeling and they may give you an idea as to ways to get them involved.
Stay positive and upbeat about the move because your attitude will influence your children’s attitude. Talk about the new experiences and opportunities in store, and let your children be involved in the move so they’ll feel a part of everything. Think of things your children can do to get ready and be sure they know that all contributions are valued and greatly appreciated.
