One out of 5 American families move each year and it’s a pretty common event today with all the job transfers, getting closer to your family and chasing the American dream. Moving with children can be an exciting adventure or it can be a stressful challenge. No matter how experienced you and your family are at moving it can bring a variety of different situations. Many prepared families report back that found their moving experience brought them closer together.
Confusion and disorder will present many more challenges to a peaceful move. It can really take a toll on us physically and mentally. If your move is brought about by death in the family, divorce or even job loss there is an element of grief or loss that ads to our ability to plan and organize. When children are part of the move we need to be fully aware of the chaos, short patience, lack of attention, they might encounter from us. Remember, a successful move with children should include them whatever the situation is.
