Moving with Children

Moving can be one of the most stressful things you will ever do in your life. When it comes to taking care of children during the move, it can be a nightmare. They can be easily neglected during the move, they have to leave their best friends,adjust within the new neighborhood, it can be difficult to adjust with the kids of new school & community.
Parents should give extra attention to their kids during this crucial time. The older the children the more time they will need to adjust, they might have hidden stresses which will also require to be addressed and parents need to be vigilant to notice any change in behavior like :
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Loss of sleep
  • Poor results in studies.
  • Other behavioral changes.
There are a few tricks and routine points which parents should follow to minimize any depression related illness :
  • Do not throw any toy and kid related item during the move, they might have emotional links to them.
  • Let them see and adjust and accept the new community and consent to the move, before you actually move or plan your move.
  • Encourage them to be honest and upfront about their feelings.
  • Re-assure them that existing friends and relatives will stay in contact.
  • Do not rush unto packing or unpacking and neglect your kids. Be wise to spend your time with them in this rush, a family get together at a restaurant may be a wise thing to do.
  • Check your kids progress in school and try to talk to them and understand if there are any issues they are facing in school.
  • Doing outdoor recreational activities more often and on weekend (swimming,football lessons, hiking to name a few), buy them some new sport gear will also help them get focused on recreational activities.
