Moving and children

Moving comes with a great deal of chores and paperwork. And we are just talking about a normal removal of a single or couple. If you are moving with children these tasks become heavier, because you have to take multiple people into consideration. Not to mention the day itself when having to organize everything with small enthousiasts running around. There actually are a few tips and tricks to run things as smoothly as possible. If you have children, we recommend:

    1. Let your children visit friends or family
      It is really great to not have your hands full whilst moving. Take your children to see family for a day. Or take them to daycare. They will loving spending time with their friends and it will enable you to fully concentrate on your removal.
    2. Tell them why you are moving
      Children are extremely curious. And you will probably get a lot of questions on why you are moving. Take the time to explain this to your kids. Moving to a new place can be fun, but emotional as well. They are leaving their familiar room. Talking about why you are moving will create some calmth and gets them excited about what is coming next.
    3. Getting rooms in the new house
      Picking the perfect room is an important part of moving into a new house. Make sure it takes place in an organized setting without any negative games leading to negative experiences. You may want to consider giving your eldest the first choice. Or everyone can say which room they prefer and you draw lots to see who gets the new most wanted room. We recommend doing this as fairly as possible, so that everyone is happy and comfortable in his or her new home.
