Moving with children to another city
A change of address can be a complicated situation for the youngest members of the family to accept, especially if it involves a change of city or country. For this reason, we propose this series of tips to keep in mind when moving with children:
- Keep in mind that we are the ones who have decided to move and not our children. For this reason, they must be given special consideration and involved in this decision as far as possible. Talking about the positives you’ll find in the new city is a good way to start.
- We must prepare them for the move and the change of address, allowing them to participate actively and well in advance so that they can assimilate the change with sufficient perspective and time. It may be interesting to take a previous trip to the city, to visit places that are of special interest to them, so that they associate the new destination with positive memories.
- We should never assume things that we have not been told, as we may be wrong in our assumptions. If they don’t ask us, we should be the ones to ask them. Above all, we must promote communication, which will help us to know their situation better and be able to help them and act accordingly.
- As parents, we must take responsibility for our actions, advice and actively support our children. Under no circumstances should we leave things to chance.
- Moving with kids is something that requires the best version of ourselves. Luckily, your kids believe in you, so now is the time to believe in yourself. Trust will be the key to accepting your decision and making the whole family feel that they are part of a united home, wherever they are.
By following this guide, we will make our children better adapt to all the changes that are coming; the move, the change of school, friends, neighborhood, etc. and we will allow them to grow happily in their new home.
