Moving With Small Children
Moving can be overwhelming, especially for small children. They have to leave their friends, familiar routines, and the comfort of their home and community. However, with a little preparation, relocating can ultimately be a positive experience for children. Tell Your Kids In Advance Small children need time to process the move but not too much time to worry about the change. Tell them about one month in advance. Be sure to explain to them all the things that will stay the same and what will change. Providing your child with a camera or smartphone and helping them take photos of their old home, neighborhood, and friends will allow them to say good-bye and receive closure.
