Moving alone is not always easy but moving with the whole family can turn into a very tricky challenge. If the moving day is not planned well things may go higgledy-piggledy. So the most important thing for moving with kids is to keep them under control. With just a few easy but very effective tips it may not be the most relaxing move ever, but it sure will be less stressful than it might have been.
• Planning and Preparation
Accurately timed planning is the name of the game. It’s not only important for moving with your family, it’s not only important for moving itself. It’s important for all aspects of life. But especially here it can save you a lot stress.
•Get a Baby-Sitter
It would be the best if you can organise a family member or a friend to look after the children on moving day.
It might not be very helpful having children running around in the new house where there probably is anyway a chaos.
• Get The Kids Busy
If you can’t find someone looking after the children make sure you entertain them. Give them small tasks to do so that they don’t get bored. For example let them carry small boxes or other things so that they also feel important and are allowed to take part of building up the new home.
• Make The Children Comfortable
Let the kids help you to arrange their own room. It will help them to feel more comfortable in the new surroundings. For kids it’s not always easy to move into a new home, or even maybe in a new city so make sure you prepare them before. Leaving their friends and familiar neighbourhood behind is a hard challenge for a kid, remember that. Tell them about all the advantages the new house has. Help them to stay in contact with their old friends and finding new friends.
Good luck for your move.
