While adults seem to have a better appreciation of a house move, children usually aren’t in the same boat. Telling kids about the address change is considered the hardest part of moving, and for good reason—kids and adolescents rarely cherish a change of such magnitude. Fortunately, there is a way to help the young ones cope with a big move: your attitude about the transition can help influence their psyche.
Discuss the move openly – Moving is a big decision to make, whether you’re simply moving to another part of town or to another city. To get kids into the curve, simply explain to them why you are moving. It will help for them to understand the reasons behind everything—be it a job transfer, or the need to move to a bigger house or a better neighbourhood.
