How to Help Kids Cope With Moving: 3 Tips From Oahu’s Best Movers, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving is an adjustment for anyone. Often, however, it’s the smallest members of your family who feel the biggest shake-up when moving time comes around. After over 45 years as Oahu’s best source for professional moving services, M. Dyer & Sons has watched many families work through the adjustments of transitioning to a new home, school, and neighborhood.

Whether you’re heading just across town or relocating to a new state, these tips from their experienced team of movers will help kids adjust to their fresh start:

  • Talk About It: Long before the movers arrive, talk to your kids about the upcoming changes. Be honest and transparent, sharing as many details as make sense for your child’s age. Answer questions, and listen openly to their responses. There’s a lot about moving that’s both scary and exciting for children. Acknowledging that your child’s feelings are legitimate opens the door for you to work through them together.
  • MoversGet Them Involved: Help kids take ownership of the move by empowering them throughout the process. Gather together and make a family wish list full of things you all want in your new home, and then bring kids on as many house-hunting expeditions as possible. Let your child select paint colors and decoration for their new room, and help them search the internet to find where they’ll be able to participate in their favorite activities in their new neighborhood.
  • Create Community: For many kids, leaving their friends behind is the scariest part of moving. Start cultivating a sense of community even before the movers put down the last box. Signing your child up for summer camp or sports will give them an opportunity to make friends as soon as they arrive.

Of course, keeping the moving process as smooth as possible also makes the transition easier. Make your move stress-free for kids and adults alike with moving services from M. Dyer & Sons. Visit their website or call (800) 922-2490 to request a quote from the Pearl City movers today.
