Your Kids are the most affected emotionally and psychologically with your house move. For them, moving would mean new school, new neighborhood and new sets of people that they will have to mingle. They are more concern on how your new community or the children in their new school will accept them.
Moving for them will also mean leaving their friends and their familiar surroundings. Here are some tips on how to help your kids adjust in your new community:
As a parent, you need to understand that your kids are more anxious with your house move. Your kids could undergo emotional stress and the fear not being accepted in their new community.
You need to explain to them the reason why you are moving. Discuss with them the advantages and the benefits of each of your family will get in your move.
Before your move date, at least a few weeks, take your kids to their new school. It would be better if you take them during weekends, where there are few people at school. Tour them in their new school and classroom.
Try to park your car near their new school and ask them to look at the wardrobe kids wear that are going in their school. This way, you could change your kid's wardrobe in order to blend in with their new school.
Encourage them to pack their favourite stuff like books, gadgets, toys, etc. This way, they will be able to participate in your moving process.
Make them feel that you are open with suggestions. This will encourage them to confide to you about what steps to take together in order to help accept the big change.
