Moving Home - Teens Move

Jul 10, 2008
As you know, moving your home is not an easy task for almost all of us, but for a teen this is even more difficult. Children are more emotionally attached with their environment, so it is not easy to prepare them for move. Here are a few tips that can help to prepare your teens for a change of home and social environment.

1. You can suggest them to get a moving journal and try to read it, so that the interest may be developed. If they agree to your proposal then you should buy one for them. This is a very good option for them to show how they feel about the important change in their life. It can also work as their scrapbook through which they may take a look at the past memories of settlement into the new house.

2. If you are still seeking an ideal home for you to live, ask your son or daughter for their input. In this way you will be able to know their interests. You should observe their choice for bedroom, washroom, kitchen etc. Getting their input soon during moving the house would allow them to get involved and they will feel more comfortable as they are a part of the decision.

3. Once you have taken your decision about a house, obtain the details so that you can share with the family members. Ask them to select the room of their choice, also ask them to give their views about the way they are wishing their room to look.

4. Ask them to choose their new residential city or town, for this purpose they can do their own research to collect the information. They can search whether the city they are looking to move their house has got any recreation place and proper education and other required facilities of their interest.

5. You should purchase a diary or a scrapbook of your teenagers so that they can get autographs of their teachers and friends with the emails and contact numbers. This will be helpful in the future because they can stay in touch with them for the rest of life.

6. Ask your sons and daughters how they want to say good-bye to the friends. Either they wish to arrange a party or they are looking to spend the weekend with them. Take their views and then try to assist them in making a suitable decision.

7. They should have a moving kit with them, which may contain some interesting stuff like magazines, games and books, so that they may not be bored during their journey to new house. They may also add some other things of their interest in the moving kit like maps and travel guide of their new locality.

8. Suggest them to take an essential kit too because this kit will have all the necessary things, which will be required by them during the first one or two months of their stay in the new house. This kit will contain things like clothes, shoes and other personal things, which are used in daily routine.

9. Tell them their basic responsibilities, which they have to do with interest. You can ask them to pack their room, also suggest them that they should help you in managing your garage sale. Also ask them to get involved in all the matters pertaining to the house move. It is advisable to give a task list to all the family members and they all should contribute in each matter so that everyone should have his or her share in it.
