Help your Kids Transition to Their New Home

Family moved to new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

A move is a complicated task no matter what age you are, but it is especially confounding and intimidating for your youngsters. All that they’ve grown up with is being blown away in the wind, and they’re looking at everything from leaving their old friends behind to having to discover a new school. With all of this turmoil, they’re going to be under a formidable amount of stress. Being a professional moving company in Little Rock, we have assisted families move quite a few times, and over the years we’ve seen techniques that can help your children acclimate to their new location.

Begin by putting together a well-known routine for your kids. This should be simple, as their house may have changed, but their day-to-day should be mostly the same. They still need to get out of bed, have breakfast, get cleaned up, and everything else.

You need to also schedule time to visit the school ahead of their first day. This will allow you to meet the teacher and show your kids around so they can see their new classroom in a less stressful situation. Take them out to the playground and let them play on the jungle gym a bit. This will help them feel a bit more acquainted with their environment when school starts.

If they’re interested in sports and other activities, you should look into finding a club or group that they can take part in. This will help them meet new kids their age and make friends. It’ll also help them feel secure when they become an integral part of a team, allowing their transition to be much more comfortable.

The primary thing is to just help them get out and meet new people while getting them used to their new location at the same time. By doing these things soon after your move, you’ll be able to help them feel like everything is going to be just fine.
