Moving is always a time of transition. It can be complicated enough if you move down the street. Trust us; such a situation does unfold. But suppose you are moving across the country or to a different part of the state. Such a scenario represents a massive change for everyone. After all, setting down roots and forming a sense of stability matters more than you might think. Every child needs to feel safe and comfortable and that they have a place to belong. So how can you help your kids get used to their new home? Let’s go over it.
Sit Down and Discuss the Move with Them
First of all, sit down and discuss the move with your children. This step is even more important if your kids are still barely out of their toddler stage. Otherwise, they’ll be incredibly confused and upset with what’s going on. The sooner you talk to them about such a huge change in their lives, the better they will feel. These days, it’ll be even easier for them to stay in touch with their friends, thanks to the rise of social media and other ultra-popular apps. Give them as much info as you can, and let them ask all of the questions they have.
Start Visiting the Neighborhood Around the New Home
As the countdown to moving day winds down (and even before), it’s a good idea to see the new home. Of course, a new construction home will look much different than buying a single-family home that has already seen previous owners living there. In other words, take them along as you explore the neighborhood around the new home.
Help Them Get Ready to Move Out
Then, it’s time to prep them for the actual moving process. Guide your child through how to pack everything up as neatly as possible. That way, their things won’t get lost in the shuffle. Besides, this reassures them that the items they want to keep will accompany them to their new home. Give them time to talk about the good times they had at the old house, too!
