5 Ways to Help Kids Adjust to a MoveIt’s no secret children can become attached to things easily, especially to their friends, school or neighborhood. Moving can be stressful for children, especially those who may not be as thrilled as you are about moving to a new home. If you’re planning to relocate in the future, ease the transition with these kid-friendly tips.
1. Don’t Delay –Let children know as soon as possible that your family will be moving to give them time to adjust to the change. Children are naturally inquisitive and will need to time to ask questions, so try to remain open to conversations with them. When discussing the move, present the situation in a positive manner by explaining the fun features of your new neighborhood, such as a community park, sports league or ice cream shop.
2. Make It Exciting– It can be difficult for children to understand the benefits of change, so do your best to approach the subject from a child’s perspective. Give them something to look forward to – turn the move into a game or adventure by hosting a scavenger hunt through the new neighborhood, or help your child create a bucket list of things you want to do in your new home.
3. Arrange Goodbyes – Unfamiliar situations can intensify emotions for children, so give them ample time to say goodbye to their neighborhood pals. Avoid downplaying their emotions – give them the attention they need and let them know it’s normal to be upset or nervous.
4. Get Them Involved – Children will feel less apprehensive about change if they’re involved in the process. Seeing mom or dad box up household items may be upsetting, so give them specific responsibilities to assist with packing. Including children will help them feel more positive about the move.
5. Make Introductions – After settling in to your new home, make it a point to introduce kids to their new school and neighborhood. The sooner they start making new friends, the better they’ll feel about their new home. Invite some classmates or neighbors over for play dates and or organize a block party to spark interactions.
