Relocating With Children

Handle With Care! Moving to a new home is a big change for everyone - even little people! Your children's lives will be affected by a move, and it's a good idea to keep them informed and even consult them about choices when possible.

Some things to consider:

Teenagers are most concerned with fitting in. They worry about making new friends and adapting to a new school. Will they have the right clothes? What about hairstyles, cars, bicycles, etc.? Be sure to talk with them about their concerns, and if you take an orientation trip be sure to take photos of the neighborhood and their new school. Reassure them that they can still keep in touch with their old friends, as well.

Ages 6 to 12
These children will want to know how the everyday routines of their lives are going to change. If your children take dance lessons, karate, etc., or even if their favorite thing to do is go to the pizzeria and play video games, you can find these places in your new neighborhood and bring back pictures or brochures. Signing them up for sports teams is a great way to ease the transition into a new area.

Preschool Children
Children under 6 years of age may worry about being left behind or being separated from their parents. Be sure to reassure your children that you will be back if you must go on an orientation trip without them. Bring a souvenir back to them when you return and maybe a picture or postcard to show where they will be living with you. It is very important for them to express how they feel about the move. To help them feel more secure, you might have them pack up their favorite toys and label their boxes with crayons and stickers.
