How To Help Your Child Cope With a Move

You’re starting a new career in a different city or simply need the relocation to be closer to other loved ones but your child is taking the move very personally. All children cope differently, some will show excitement while others may dread moving at all which is all right and a normal expectation when it comes to moving.

In this article we are going to discuss 3 tips you should keep in mind to help your child cope with your relocation:

  1. Take Them House Hunting
  2. Keeping Contact
  3. Make them feel loved

House Hunting

Make your child a part of the process! They will be living there after all. Allow them to feel like they have some say in the decision making. Let them explore the potential new homes with you, pick out their room(s). Moving becomes so much easier if your child can visualize their new house and this creates the opportunity to feel more excitement than sadness since they will too busy planning how they want to set everything up in their space. If you are going to live close to any amenities your child will enjoy, show them these spots as well so your child can start associating this new house as their home so the moving process can start off on the right foot!

Stay In Touch

Missing friends, neighbours or classmates is completely understandable especially if you’re moving out of the Calgary area where your child will not be able to easily see their old friends. Provide your child with an address book to ask their classmates for phone numbers, emails and other personal contact information. Depending on the age of your child, gauge if it would be best for you to ask their parents instead but definitely emphasize to your child that it is still possible to contact their friends whether it is through the phone, email or perhaps visiting one another every once in awhile! If your child is having difficulty coping consider seeking the services of movers so you can focus more on their needs and concerns and ease some of your stress about the relocation!
