Making the Big Move Easier on Your Child

Whether you’re moving for a job or to a different area for financial reasons, there are several precautionary steps you can take to make the move easier on your child. Your child will most likely have several questions and might possibly even be upset but following these steps can help your child adjust much easier.

  • Sit your child down and clearly explain why you are moving and why it is necessary. He will have a lot of questions so be sure to familiarize yourself with the area you will be moving to. Be able to answer questions your child might have about the new school he will be attending, parks, recreational areas, and other exciting things your new city has to offer.
  • Have pictures handy of what the city looks like so the child can familiarize himself with the new city. Show him the new school he will be attending from pictures or the online website so he can get excited about his new school. If your child is really into sports, familiarize him with what sports the school has to offer and even the statistics of each sport.
  • During the move, allow your children to be a part of the move as much as possible. When looking at homes, have each child write down what they want the most out of a new house, if it be a large yard or their own bedroom. Let them know you can’t make any promises but you will try your hardest so that they can feel that they are part of the decision making process. If they are old enough, allow them to pack up their own boxes and pick out their new rooms. Include them in the decorating process. Allowing them to participate as much as possible in the move will help them get excited about it and ease any stress they might be feeling.
  • Once you have moved, make sure to help your kids still keep in touch with old friends. Whether it is through Facebook, phone, email or snail mail, allowing them to still connect with old friends will help ease any stress they may be feeling.
