Most of us moved frequently as young adults when all you had to do was enlist the help of a few friends. Especially one with a pickup truck. It was so simple to throw your few belongings together and pull up roots without a backward glance.
Fast forward to the present with more stuff to move and even a child or two to be considered when moving. Children are not as adaptable to change in their lives and thrive on sameness and routine. As parents it’s up to you to view the new experience in a positive way even if you aren’t thrilled yourself. Depending on their age and ability to understand create a sense of adventure about living in a different home. Getting them involved by helping carefully pack their most prized toys and talk about how to paint or decorate their new room will ease the move.
