As a premier and leading-edge West Palm Beach moving company, the professionals at DeVries Family Moving know better than anyone else how difficult moving with young children can be. But it’s more than just a hassle; it’s about making your kids feel comfortable with this next step in their lives. By taking some time to address your children’s concerns and make them feel more excited about moving, you’ll be addressing both of these issues at once. This means you’ll simultaneously be alleviating their fears of moving and helping them cope while making the moving process easier on yourself and on your movers.
Easing The Relocation Process for Children
- Communicate – Talking to your children is essential. Simply listening to their concerns and addressing them supportively is often enough to make them feel more confident about starting fresh. Be sure to frame the move as a chance to make new friends and go on a new adventure.
- Go Out With a Bang – Everyone hates saying goodbye to their friends. Give your child closure and help them cope by throwing a goodbye party. Not only does it help generate excitement, but it gives your child and their friends a chance to leave on a high note.
- Timing is Everything – If possible, time your move in the summer. While it may be the busiest time for moving, avoiding relocating in the middle of a school year can help ease stress and concern when it comes to making friends.
- Pack Right – Keep favorite blankets and toys on hand to help comfort your child. Also be sure to provide snacks so they feel content and not agitated throughout the move. Letting your child help pack small items and make decisions about what toys to keep can help them feel as though they have some control over the situation. Once you arrive, help your child get their room set up the way they want so they can relax and acclimate to their new home.
