Tips for moving home with children
Moving house is an incredibly stressful time, especially if you have a big family. There are lots of things and factors that complicate a house move, and these are often made all the more chaotic if you are moving with young children. Children can easily become tireless and agitated if they feel uncomfortable, and a moving day is definitely a unique situation for them. If you have young children, here are a number of tips that can help the day go smoothly:
Get the kids involved
One reason children might get moody or restless is if they feel left out. Try and let your children get involved as much as they can, perhaps by letting them carry small items to the car or van. After all, moving home is as big of a deal for them as it is for you.
Keep the kids in the know
Don’t let anything catch the children by surprise, talk to them well in advance of the move so they are well prepared. If you explain everything about the day beforehand then they will be much calmer when it happens than it being sprung on them at the last minute.
Try to stay calm yourself
Children can recognise when you are stressed and this can often be passed on to them. They will be able to feel when you are annoyed or agitated and this will likely make them become more unnerved and uncomfortable. Try to keep calm and maintain a level head and the day will be much more enjoyable.
