Moving with kids is a completely different experience than moving with adult. Your son, John, may have just made the football team after his hard efforts finally paid off and you're moving! Mary may have just got rid of her zits and met her first boyfriend and now you're moving! Maybe junior just got used to his teacher at school and you're moving!
This guide contains useful information on how to help your children accept the move, see the benefits of the move and learn for the move and this is the key for a successful move for you and your family.
Approximately seven million kids move with their families each year and nearly all survive the ordeal. Moving is not easy on anyone as routines are changed and emotions can take over from common sense.
Confusion, anger and sadness can be the emotions seen in people and children planning on moving, particularly teenagers. Never fear as this is perfectly normal and your family is not gone totally off the wall. Most children will benefit from moving at least once in their youth.
It can help them develop the skills to meet new people with ease and to appreciate the diversity in our great country. Children generally focus on the emotions of the move whereas adults focus on the actual physical move.
