There are many tips that may be given as of the manner in which a domestic removal with children can be tackled. Here are some of those:
- Talk to your kids. They might not fully understand what is going on around them, but once you have sit them down and explained everything simply, chances are that they are going to get it and feel less stressed out about the whole venture.
- Get them involved. Delegate some small-time packing duties to your kids. Maybe ask them to help with the end of tenancy cleaning. Thus you will give them the feeling that they are participating in some sort of an adventure, and they will have a much easier time coping with the whole moving scenario.
- Throw a goodbye party/a housewarming Do it both for your kids and for yourself. Specialists suggest that a good, heart-warming party is one of the best ways to avoid the notorious post-removal depression.
- Take them seriously. In the middle of all the chaos surrounding the preparations for your upcoming home move, it might seem to you that the things that bother your little ones are insignificant. Well, they are not, and you should not, under any circumstances, allow yourself to think that, because you are going to do something stupid you will regret soon. Listen carefully to what is bothering your kids and then try to resolve it, just like a good parent is expected to.
- Make sure that all boxes containing the stuff of your kids are carefully and clearly labelled – thus if you need something quickly, you will be able to find it.
- Do not start unpacking right away – once you have arrived at your new place, rushing into unpacking all the boxes is going to create much unnecessary clutter – and clutter leads to stress for everyone, especially your kids. You remember that was the one thing we were trying to avoid at all costs, right?
