Once you have decided your family is going to move, you should share the news with your kids early on. Odds are, they will have strong reactions, but having an open discourse gives children the opportunity to express concerns and ask questions. It’s important to acknowledge their emotions and respond with empathy to help them feel heard. Another tactic to help your child adjust is to get them involved in the moving process. This can include things like picking out paint colors for a new room. The goal is to focus on how exciting the move is and not dwell on the negative. The following infographic offers more considerations when moving your family.
