Here are a few choice tips to help your children get as excited as you are about your next move.
Even though I knew moving was going to be good for my children, the actual process of moving from one neighborhood to another was very traumatic for them. I knew that it would work out; the only challenge was coaching them through the process.
To help your children cope with the idea of moving to a new home, it’s best to get them involved with the process. Let them go with you to view the home so they can see their future bedrooms. If you’re changing school districts, take them to visit their new school so they can see what they have to look forward to. If you’re moving to a new city, spend time with them as you look for things in the community that they could get excited about—sports, dance, recreation, or whatever interests they have.
Take the time to help them feel like a contributor to the transition so they don’t feel so powerless about the change.
Moving can be a tough process, especially for older children. However, we all know that it will work out and that it’s best for everyone. Just take the time to help them feel like a contributor to the transition so they don’t feel so powerless about the change.
