Moving With Your Family? 5 Things That Help Ease The Transition

Jul 24, 2008
Moving is always a difficult time in everyone's life. It doesn't help though, being a child through the moving process because you have no choice but to follow with your mom and dad. Even though transitioning to a new home and neighborhood can cause anxiety for the family there is hope for everyone.

It takes being patient, understanding and more importantly, letting the kids in on the packing process. Here are a few additional tips that might help your family too.

The first thing you must accomplish is hiring movers to move your house stuff and locate a good transporting company for your cars. It can be so overwhelming trying to choose between the two ways of moving.

Do you go with self moving and rent portable moving Pods or do you hire full service movers to do the job? It depends on how far you're moving too, especially if you are relocating to another country.

Second, you are prepared to move at your new home. Don't forget to inform your close neighbor, friends and relatives. Give them your new address & name of landmark. After all you have spent some time with them and have different type of attachments with the people and place.

Third, don't get caught off guard with not having some essentials ready to take care of family needs. All your goods are packed and you will cannot find them at transit way. So it's better to carry an extra box with every family member of some necessary things that you can get easily anytime and by carrying it you don't have to wait for unpacking.

Your carrying box should include Soap and shampoo, Painkillers, regular medicines, First Aid box, Scissors and knife, Power cords and batteries, Tissues and Towels, Tea and coffee maker, Disposable glasses, plastic bags and plate, Light bulbs, linens, Map of the new area etc.

Fourth, rearrange your goods carefully at new location starting from Kitchen, Bedroom, Restroom, and other places. Set kids room according to their preference and shortly because it's important to give them comfort first. But before the moving company agent arrives at your home you should inspect the contents of your house from basement all the way up to the attic.

It's really very hard for everyone to feel part of something after a big move for your enjoyment has fun with shopping for new furnishing and decorative items. If not able to find the perfect idea take the help from your local newspaper. Your local web site, paper or phone directory is usually a great place to start for ideas.

Meet with your new neighbor. Check their nature by taking lots of walks and drives. Also go out to have part of the fun in your new society. Discover new parks and restaurants. At the same time, start meeting people in your new community; you may have to take the initiative by introducing yourself and the children to the neighbors.

Finally, this is a very important tip to consider for your family. Give your kids good judgment of packing their own possessions by given permission to set their room, playing with new friends, sharing their class work with new classmates etc.

Because like I said, I feel that to become familiar with a new location, you first you have to be a part of it. This is true for children as well. Get them out into the neighborhood to meet other kids as soon as you get there.
