3 Tips for Moving With Kids, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving to a new home can be stressful, especially with children in tow. From packing up each room in your house to hiring a moving company, there is a lot to do before you can settle in to your new abode. To streamline the process, consider the following tips to make the move easier on both the adults and kids in your household. 

How to Make Moving Easier for Your Kids

1. Have a Discussion About Moving Day

While discussing the move with your children, be positive and offer details, such as the reasons for the relocation and what to expect on the big day. Show pictures of the new home and bedrooms to get your children excited about the transition.  

2. Include Your Children in the Packing Process

movingEncourage your kids to pack up their own rooms to give them a sense of control in the situation. Have them sort their possessions into separate piles, such as toys to bring to the new home and toys to donate, which will also let them do something positive for others as a result of the move.

3. Keep Some of Their Favorite Possessions in the Car

If you have younger children, let them hold onto their favorite toys when you drive up to your new home. Having those familiar items will comfort them as they face an empty new home and the daunting task of unpacking.
