3 Tips to Keep Your Kids Calm on Moving Day, Rochester, New York

Moving can be an exciting experience for the entire family, but it can also be very stressful, especially for children. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to make the move as easy as possible for your children. 

Becker Movers, Rochester’s leading moving company, has some tips to help make your move less stressful for your little ones:

  • Ask For Help: Take advantage of the help others may offer. There’s a lot that goes into moving, so having some extra hands can really help. If you can afford it, hire a babysitter who can keep the kids distracted on moving day, or try to schedule a play date at a friend’s house. Giving them some space away from the chaos can really help calm their nerves.
  • Get Them Involved: Give the kids a box that they can fill with their own things. Letting them be a part of the move can help them understand what’s happening and give them some control of the situation. You can also give them a box of crayons or markers and let them decorate their boxes. This is a great way to keep them busy and still let them feel like they’re helping.
  • MovingPlan Ahead: Planning ahead can help lower some of the stress and anxiety that comes with moving. Start early and do a little bit every day so it’s not too overwhelming on moving day. Keep your kids’ favorite toys and personal items somewhere they can be easily accessed.

Thinking ahead and making a plan will help alleviate the stress of moving.
