In honor of mothers day I thought this would be a timely post, hope all you moms out there are having a wonderful mother's day.
Moving is a stressful time for you, but imagine how it is for a child who doesn't understand why he has to leave his school and friends behind.
Before moving get all of your children's friends addresses, address the envelopes and tell them you they can write to them anytime. Pack up the children's room last and unpack it first. Make sure a routine is set that can be used in both homes.
Start reading to the kids weeks before moving, then continue reading to them once you are in the new home. The kids will realize the only thing that changed is where they live. They can still have their friends and talk to them anytime they want and all their toys are still with them. This will lower their stress, help them with the move and make it a lot less stressful for you in the long run.
