Moving House with Children

Posted by markdemin on February 4th, 2019

Moving to a new house is an exciting time for adults, lots to plan and look forward to, new scenery and new experiences.  For children however this might not always be the case, change can be hard to assimilate, they may be worried about leaving friends behind, changing schools, or the new house itself and the change of environment. Of course your children might love the whole moving experience, hiring a man and van, packing and unpacking, setting up their new rooms - it can all be adventure.  Either way we have broken these tips down into sections so hopefully there will be something here to make things easier for you and your family.

When Looking for Your New Home

Change is inevitable

In all areas of our life change is a natural occurrence and mostly unavoidable.  Whilst, as adults, we can be excited about the prospect of a new home, children may not share that enthusiasm. They will be leaving a lot of familiar and secure things behind to step into the unknown and it's important to bear this in mind when explaining the move to them.

Talk the children through it

Make sure they understand when you are moving and that they will have new rooms and a new house.  There’s no right or wrong time to do this, just bear in mind that the longer they have to digest the fact of the move the easier it will be for them when the day comes. Getting them involved in the physical side is also important, there's plenty of packing to be done and they can even decorate the boxes once packed.  Getting them involved in this way makes them feel like participants rather than just having it forced upon them.

Ask the children what they would like in your new home

Before the house hunting starts sit down and create a list of things they would like to see (bigger garden, attic bedroom, playroom etc.) - naturally you may not be able to accommodate all their wishes but this will allow them to have an input into the house selection process.

Reassure them about their new school

Moving to a new house means a likely move to a new school, which means new friends and new teachers. Talk to them about this and if possible take them to see the new school before the move, this will help them build a picture of what it might be like to go there.
