How to Make the Move Less Dreadful for the Children
When the family has to move, the children need to be informed as soon as possible. This way they can be involved with the move as much as possible. This will help them get adjusted to the idea that they would have to leave your current home, their current school and their friends behind. It is important that you keep a positive attitude about the move. If you are already showing a negative attitude they could show the same too. It might be normal to get negative reactions though. However, it is important that you know how they feel too so you will know how to deal with their feelings. You would be able to assess how you can encourage them to be positive about the move. For instance, you can search the Internet about the city that you are going to together. To get the kids excited and interested, you can show them theme parks, libraries and other facilities they will find there. If you have not chosen a new home yet, you could also ask the children's output as to where they want to move. They could go with you when you view houses and eventually choose your next home. They can also decorate their own rooms so they will really have something to look forward and get excited about.
