What’s the best way to help children adjust to all the changes of moving?  While there are many answers to this question, here are some general tips:

  • Talk to your children early, openly and often about the move and what changes it will bring.
  • Keep to your normal routine as much as possible, and arrange to continue your child’s current activities in the new community.
  • Keep favorite items (toys, books, etc.) accessible
  • Have children help pack a special box with their most treasured toys – they can even decorate the box!
  • If possible, take your children to the new community before the move to introduce them to their new surroundings.
  • Let your children get involved with planning and packing if possible, and ask for their input on how they would like to decorate their new rooms.
  • Above all, ask for thoughts and opinions, and listen

Happy moving!!!
