picture of family moving into new homeA move is an elaborate event no matter what age you are, but it is particularly and eerie for your kids. All that they’ve grown up with is being blown away in the wind, and they’re looking at everything from leaving their old friends behind to having to getting acquainted with a new school. With all of this turbulence, they’re going to be under a large quantity of stress. Here at A-1 Freeman Moving Group, we’ve helped families move time and time again, and over the years we’ve seen techniques that can help your kids get used to their new location.

Begin by building a well-known routine for your kids. This should be pretty easy, as their house may have changed, but their day-to-day should be mostly the same. They still need to get up, have breakfast, get cleaned up, and everything else.

You need to also plan time to swing by the school ahead of their first day. This will let you meet the teacher and show your kids around so they can see their new classroom in a less stressful environment. Take them out to the playground and let them play on the jungle gym a bit. This will help them feel a bit more accustomed with their surroundings when school starts.

If they take part in sports and other similar things, you should look into finding a club or group that they can participate in. This will help them meet new kids their age and make friends. It’ll also help them feel grounded when they become an integral part of a team, allowing their transition to be much more comfortable.

The main thing is to just help them get out and meet new people while getting them adapted to their new area at the same time. By doing these things soon after your move, you’ll be able to help them feel like everything is going to be just fine.
