Before leaving your old home behind, it’s important to help your children prepare to say goodbye to it. Here are some tips to help their relocation go as smoothly as possible:
Keep your child involved in the moving process.
Moving is difficult for everyone, but your relocation will go much more smoothly if your kids are kept in the loop about the details.
Write the date you’re moving on the family calendar, so your child is well aware of when it’s happening. Also, write the date that you’ll need to start packing. If your children are older, have them pack up their own rooms or favorite items. Supply them with markers, crayons, stickers and labels so they can decorate their boxes.
Ask your children to draw a picture of how they will arrange and decorate their new room. You could even help make a floor plan.
