How to Make Your Move Easier On the Kids

Moving is stressful enough with the planning, packing, and the actual moving process without adding kids into the mix.  So how do you make a move with kids easier on you as well as them?  Here are a few steps that you can take to ensure that this can happen:

  • Explain to the kids what is happening and why
  • Let them know that everything will be okay and you love them
  • Help them get excited about the move by picking out something for them to focus on, for ex. decorating their awesome new room!
  • Let them be sentimental about their favorite things in or around the house
  • Make a scrapbook for the old house and then it can be a continued project for them to work on things they love about the new house
  • Have a going away party for them to say goodbye to the neighborhood and friends
  • If it is a local move see if they can stay with grandparents or family friends during the actual move
  • When they see their new home make sure it is a first positive experience for them

We hope these tips helped and as always we are here “to help take the stress out of your move”!
