Tips for Moving with Children

Moving is a stressful time for parents, however it is equally as stressful for children. If you have finally sealed the deal on an upcoming move, it's time to work with your children on understanding why you are moving as well as how they can help so that they feel involved as well. Here are a few good tips for moving with children:

Have a Family Conference - Set a time and date and sit everybody down (most likely over dinner) to inform everybody of the plans. Explain why you are moving and how it will impact the entire family. This move, whether near or far, will impact your children so be sure to explain all of the details.

Show them the New Home - Once you have explained all of the details, give the kids a visual! Take them to the new home (if they haven't already seen it) and ask for their feedback. Allow them to feel like they are making decisions "Where would you want your bed?" "What color do you want your room?". 

Cut the Clutter - This is a great time go purge and disregard anything that the kids don't need. Give them 2 bags - one for garbage and one for donations and let them sort through their belongings. Sometimes giving an incentive really works: "I know you like that new toy so if you can clear two bags filled with old toys we will have room for the new toy!". Many children also take pride in giving children in need some toys as well!

Organize a Yard Sale - Children love the idea of making money (whether it's a few dollars or a few hundred!). If your child is just learning the value of money, a yard sale is a great way for them to participate. They can set up their own table and sell their toys or belongings (of course, with the help of mom and dad).
