According to HealthyChildren.org, children tend to focus on the negative side of moving, especially if they’re in high school. Children tend to feel a loss of friends and belonging. This is why we stressed the importance of talking with your children and explaining the move to them before moving day in the first blog series. It’s important that you emphasize the positive aspects of moving with your children.
If you do have a child that isn’t happy about moving to a new city, take them to explore the new city. The best way to learn about your new environment and become involved is to get out of the house and explore. While becoming involved in your new community, it’s important to also keep contact with people from your old community. This allows your child to maintain old friendships while building new ones.
Lastly, allow your child to unpack and arrange their room the way they want to. This gives the child a sense of control back from moving when their getting settled into your new home. These are just a few tips that are sure to make settling into your new home stress-free.
