You’ve made the decision to move. You’ve found the perfect house, so not it’s time to get packing. But what about the kids? No matter how far you’re moving, it usually is an upsetting event in a child’s life. So how can you make the ordeal go smoother?

Have a Family Meeting. Make your kid’s favorite dinner and have a nice meal with them so you can casually discuss the matter. This way you can let them know why the move is necessary and let them ask their questions.

Involve Them in the Process. Making your children part of the process will go a long way to smooth the process. You can go through the house and get rid of all the unnecessary junk that has accumulated over the years. Get the kids to help you decide what can be trashed, donated or sold.

Help Your Children Learn About Where They’re Moving. Help them learn about their new community. Encourage them to do some research of their own on the internet. Help the check out the local schools and school district. A website with pictures of their new school would be helpful and help them get a sense of where they’ll be attending school.

These are just a few suggestions on how to make moving with children easier. You can find more tips here.
