3 Tips to Alleviate the Stress of Moving with Children

You’ve decided that you’re ready to move! Congratulations!

However, moving isn’t just packing boxes and driving a truck across town. There are many factors to consider, especially when you have kids. Because children can become stressed quickly during times of change, taking extra steps to reduce anxiety can be helpful during the moving process. Here are a few tips to help your move go smoothly with kids.

1. Communicate, communicate, communicate.

Having an open line of communication with your kids about moving is one of the most important things you can do as their parent. Many times, kids don’t understand why they have to uproot their entire lives. It’s also common for them to constantly ask “why” they have to do something, especially if they are younger. Explaining as much as you can to them about why you decided to move and giving details about the new home can make your kids feel less stressed. And don’t forget that if you have pets, reassure your children that their furry friends are coming to the new home too!

Switching neighborhoods means changing to a new school, meaning they have to find a whole new set of friends. It can also mean a new group of kids playing within the neighborhood, a new teacher, or new activities after school. Reframing the way you talk about the move is just as important as communicating with your child. If they see that you view moving as a positive thing, they are less likely to be upset about it. After all, our kids mirror our behavior. Taking them to see their new school or home can also help alleviate some anxiety about moving. Things tend to become more authentic in our minds when we can view them in person.

2. Find childcare for the day of the move.

Some children just don’t do well with change. No matter how well-behaved or well-adjusted they are, moving (along with other major life events) can trigger them to act out in ways they usually wouldn’t. Ask friends or family if they can watch them the day of the move to release some of the stress of the day. Spending some time with familiar faces may help them during the transition. If you do not have friends or family nearby, you can reach out to local center that offers daily child care.

3. De-stress yourself.

As mentioned earlier, adults set the example for their children. If you’re stressed, they are more likely to be stressed too. One way to reduce your stress is to hire someone to help during the move. Trying to do everything yourself isn’t feasible in any situation, much less moving with children. Hiring a moving company like us is a great way to get things done efficiently without breaking the bank. We can help with:

  • Storing your items in a climate-controlled, safe, and clean area
  • Packing and organizing your items with care
  • Cleaning your old home before someone new moves in
  • Furniture repair if anything breaks during the move

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth. Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.
