Tips When Moving With Kids - C&C Moving Company
For an adult, a move is generally an exciting and positive thing. It's even because there is a new job and a new home to look forward to, or perhaps a change of country and exciting upcoming cultural life as well. However, the move itself may be stressful, but the different tasks that have to be completed are a more than adequate distraction.
For the little ones, the process of moving is more disruptive. They're leaving familiar surroundings and close friends from school and neighborhood. Even though they'll likely adapt quickly to their new situation, but the move itself can be stressful.
It will help if your children are involved on whatever level of the moving process itself. For a young child, it may be putting his blanket and favorite toy in a box or for older kids, it might be checking to make sure each room has been emptied or giving his room a final vacuuming.
Toddlers and young children
It's better to tell younger children as soon as possible about the move so that they can adjust the idea. Start by Telling them why you're moving and also stress the benefits such as a bigger playground in the new house or that the bigger room going to be for them.
The youngest children won't really understand what it means to move, but they need to know and be explained what it's going to change in the new house. Make sure they know the family and all their belongings like bed, security blankets, and toys will all be together in the new house.
As moving day approaches help them understand what moving means. You can tell them that on Sunday morning, a truck will pull up into the driveway and that the driver and his helpers will take things from the old house to the new house.
What To Do On Moving Day
Younger children will need a neighbor, a relative, or babysitter to keep an eye on them. Set aside a place where they can play and be out of the way. Have an iPad, puzzle, or toy that they can unwrap and play with. Begin the day by having them pack their "special box" that holds a few toys and special items. If your kids are older, involve them in the move to make sure nothing is left behind.
