How to reduce the trauma of moving

Nothing is more frightening to a child than the unknown. That’s why "moving away" can be a scary thought. With your help, moving can be turned into an adventure. And if your child’s attitude is one of eager anticipation rather than fear, relocating will be much easier for you too.

Relax!! Kids are fairly resilient, even if at first it seems they’ll never forgive you for moving. In time, they will, often sooner than you’d expect. It’s not always easy for parents, themselves under moving stress to respond with patience and warmth, but these efforts are rewarded.
