Your home is a place of stability and peace for you and if you have children, it can be a grounding force in their lives. Relocating to a new community (or even a new block) can be a very challenging, and exciting, event for you and for them. We have made a few moves with our kids and it is often a chaotic time, especially if the move involves a new city or country!
As friends and schools are left behind, regular landmarks and teams are changed, and although it can be an exciting time, the longing for familiarity of home is likely to have lasting impact on your children’s lives.
Developing moments of joy despite the relocation confusion is important and several methods can help in calming your child’s sense of upheaval.
