A move is an elaborate event regardless what age you are, but it is particularly and eerie for your kids. All that they’ve grown up with is being thrown to the wind, and they’re staring 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 ton quantity of stress. Here at Oil Capitol Relocation, we’ve helped families move
time and time again, and throughout the years we’ve seen techniques that can help your kids get used to their new location.
Begin by putting together a recognizable routine for your kids. This should be simple, as their house may be new, but their day-to-day should remain mostly the same. They still need to get up, have breakfast, get cleaned up, and everything else.
You need to also schedule time to swing by the school ahead of their first day. This will allow you to meet the teacher and show your kids around so they can see their new classroom in a less stressful situation. Take them out to the playground and let them play on the jungle gym a bit. This will help them feel a bit more acquainted with their environment when school starts.
If they’re interested in sports and other activities, you should find them 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 secure when they become an integral part of a team, allowing their transition to be much more comfortable.
The primary thing is to just help them get out and meet new people while getting them accustomed to their new area at the same time. By doing these things not long after your move, you’ll be able to help them feel like everything is normal again quickly.
