Moving house can be stressful for adults, so it is no wonder that young children can find it very difficult as well. To celebrate Universal Children`s Day, here are our top tips to make your house move easier on the young ones:
🏡 Give children time to get used to the idea of moving by telling them as early as possible.
🏡 If possible, take them to a second viewing so they can see their new home or take them for a walk around the neighbourhood.
🏡 Talk through the process with them and explain why you’re moving house and how your new home will be better for them.
🏡 Get them involved, allow them to help with packing or give them a cardboard box to play with to make the process more fun.
🏡 Have some snacks, comfort items and entertainment to hand on moving day.
🏡 Unpack their items first to help them get settled in more quickly. Try to use the same bedding from the old house rather than fresh sheets, as the smell can help them to adjust.
🏡 Try to keep to their usual routine as much as possible. This can be difficult when moving, but it helps to instil a feeling of stability and prevents them from becoming overwhelmed.
🏡 Be considerate if they`re feeling nostalgic or emotional. Share stories of the old house or make a scrapbook together.
Save this for when you find your new home or share it to help someone moving with their children in toe.
