Moving house

At some point in life we will be in the situation of moving house and can be various reasons: financial, employment, family, etc. A move brings with it many stresses for adults, when they move, how they move, and above all things to prepare for moving day, parents are so busy that often forget the emotional impact it can have on their children. You will also need a removals service, if you are in bigger city this wouldn’t be such a problem. But if you are in small city, then you should start looking for removals service on time.

In the case of an infant under one year old, this change will not be problematic if they perceive the change, but may adapt more easily since they still do not totally adapted to their environment. Preschoolers are also generally easier to adapt to change, but already have a routine, a familiar environment do not yet have a clear perception of what happens, so that parents can make the new house becomes a desired place for them. Children suffer the most with the adjustment to the new house are preschool children who have recently gone through traumatic changes as the death of a loved by them or their parents’ divorce, or changes that are important to them, as the passage of crib to a bed, changing the kindergarten, etc.

In the case of children of school age, these changes add to the feeling detached from people or things like neighborhood friends, the park where they often play their special corner of the house will sit, or people from the neighborhood see daily as the baker, the guard, etc., and will need even more to lose, and they clearly have their own world which suddenly fall apart and they are hard to understand and accept change. The main idea should be considered is the perception that his son before the move. Maybe some of their children happily accepted the move but another remains reluctant to do so, they are both the same advantages of the new house, but both the perceived differently.

Some tips that can help are:
Try to keep a positive attitude towards the move, at least in front of your child, children are affected by the attitudes and moods of their parents, especially in times of change, so that messages of peace and security are indispensable. If before the move has been a major change or traumatic, if possible is better to postpone the move until the child has adapted to the new situation. Talk with your child before the move and keep talking with them often about it (in a clear and simple), giving information about moving house and answering your questions truthfully.

Take the new home to your child before you move there and leave some toys to have something familiar to your next visit, and know the neighborhood, places where they can play, walk, what family and friends live nearby, and so on. If it was not possible to see the new home for being in a faraway place give as much information, photos, videos, etc. Use a story invented by you, about a family that is going to move, may even act out the story using your child’s toys. Try to keep the furniture in the bedroom of her son and put off remodeling the time they are adapted to the new house.

On moving day the first thing to put in order is the bedroom of her son and encourage your child to stay in kindergarten or a close relative of him, then when finished organizing her bedroom to take the child new home. After moving try to keep normal routines in both food, bedtime, watching television, bathroom, etc., To give your child the order and familiarity which is accustomed.
