Moving? Make sure the kids are alright...

Moving to a new city or state is filled with many different exciting possibilities-new home,new job,new restaurant's to try. But for kids, relocating is fraught with fear-new school, new faces, new neighborhood.

 

If there's a relocation in your future, here are a few ways to help your kids adjust and embrace their new home:

 

Do your research. If you can't visit your new community together in advance, do some research and find out what attractions may be particularly interesting to your child. Get your child excited about all the new places to explore.

 

Get to know families with same-age children. Invite them over or arrange for a play date at the park. This will help your child bridge the often difficult gap of making new friends.

 

Get them involved. The sooner your child gets involved in the local activity of their choosing the better.

 

Enlist a support group. New teachers, coaches, guidance counselors, and clergy can all play a critical role in helping your child adjust, so get them on board right away.

 

Acknowledge their feelings. Most important of all, allow your child to mourn the loss of their former home, community and friends. Let him or her know these feelings are normal and that you, too, miss your old home sometimes.
