Moving Home with Children
Or Even Dogs!
For children moving to a new
house, city or even country can be a real adventure, it can also be
an extremely traumatic time. Here are a few pointers to help
make your family move a smooth one.
Keep your children in the
loop. Give your children as much information as possible about
the upcoming move. Tell them why you are moving and what they
can expect when they arrive in their new home.
Familiarize your children
with their new home. Show them maps and photographs of their new
town or city. Ask them if they have any questions. Talk about
their new schools.
Give them time to adjust to
the idea of moving home. Remember they have friends they are
going to be leaving behind.
For older children remind
them that they can stay in touch with friends via email and
video chat etc. Also, let them know all of the plus points about
For younger children, make
the experience an adventure. Again, let them be part of the move
by helping out.
Last of all don't be tempted
to send your children away until after the move is over. This
can have devastating effects and quite often causes them to
never accept their new home as "home".
Like I always say, when it comes to the
moving thing I have been there and have the scars to prove it! If I
can be of help in your move you need only ask.
