Moving can be a big deal for kids, especially if you’re moving to a new city or state. To help your kids adjust to the move, start talking to them about it early on. Share with your children the details of when you are moving and where your new home is located. Let your kids be part of some of the decision-making, such as decorating and new purchases for the home. Try to visit the city beforehand to familiarize your kids with the neighborhoods, schools, and sites.
- Moving to a new state or city can be very difficult for a child.
- Have a discussion with your children about where and when you will be moving.
- Take your children for a tour of your new city and familiarize them with the schools, neighborhoods, and sites.
“As soon as you know you will be moving, plan to sit down and talk about it with your children.”
