Helping Children Cope With A Move

Helping Children Cope With A Move

Over the years of being a Real Estate Broker many of my buyers have made suggestions that have helped their children handle a move. From personal experience, I’ve also added a few of my own.  

Before you leave your old neighborhood, assure your children that you will not forget their friends. Children can send a card or text their new address and phone numbers. Making a scrapbook that includes their old neighborhood and home can be fun; include a few selfies with their friends.  

If you have the opportunity, show the children their new home and their new room prior to moving.  When you start packing up your old home, it may be a good idea to give your children their own boxes to pack special things. Letting them decorate the boxes can be fun also.  

Once you are settled in your new home, take your children around to visit their new school, playground, church, etc.  Encourage them to take part in groups, sports, and activities like the ones they used to participate in.

Remember, even if you only lived in a home for a few years, to a young child it might be their entire lifetime.

Please let me know if you have any additional suggestions that you would add to the above.  I would really like to hear from y’all.
