All that they’ve known is being thrown to the wind, and they’re running into everything from leaving their old friends behind to having to figuring out a new school. With all of this turbulence, they’re going to be under a formidable quantity of stress. Here at A-1 Freeman Moving Group, we’ve helped families move time and time again, and over the years we’ve seen ways that can help your kids acclimate to their new location.

Start by putting together a familiar routine for your kids. This should be pretty easy, as their house may be different, but their day-to-day should remain mostly the same. They still need to get up, have breakfast, get cleaned up, and everything else.

You need to also schedule time to swing by the school ahead of their first day. This will allow you to meet the teacher and show your kids around so they can see their new classroom in a less stressful environment. Take them out to the playground and let them play on the jungle gym a bit. This will help them feel a bit more acquainted with their surroundings when school begins.

If they take part in sports and other similar things, you should find them a club or group that they can sign up for. This will help them meet new kids their age and make friends. It’ll also help them feel secure when they become an integral part of a team, allowing their transition to be much easier.

The primary thing is to just help them get out and meet new people while getting them used to their new area at the same time. By doing these things shortly after your move, you’ll be able to help them feel like everything is back to normal.
