Moving can be a difficult event for many children and as a parent, it can leave you feeling helpless. Use some of our tips to make your children more comfortable during your upcoming move and help them get excited about some of the upcoming changes.
Introduce Them to Their New Town
Use whatever resources you have to learn more about your new home. Do some research on your town and the surrounding area and find some fun things your children will enjoy in their new hometown. If possible, take a drive and visit some of the places your child will be interested in. Share these places, facts, and other features with your children to reassure them that their new home will bring some exciting adventures!
Plan Out Their New Room
One of the fun things about moving is the excitement of getting a new bedroom. Get them excited for the big move by planning out their new bedroom from choosing the room itself to decorations, themes, new bedding, or other features they’ll enjoy.
Have a Going Away Party
Invite the neighborhood, your friends and family to come say goodbye to your home. Even if you are moving locally, throwing a party to celebrate with cake, food, and friends will get your children more excited about the new house.
Learn More About Their New School
Moving to a new school can be one of the most difficult things for children to adjust to. Try to change their anxious feelings into excitement by learning more about the school and sharing information they will enjoy. Find sports teams, clubs, or other programs that will spark the interest of your children that they may not have at their current school.
