Time to Move!
On moving day, don’t try to do it all at once! Have separate overnight bags with whatever you need for a day. Include snacks and activities; then order in some pizza and play some games. Make the first night in your new home about your family, not your things! If you’ve unpacked some of the larger boxes, try taping them together into tunnels or cutting windows for creative play. You’ll never have more play boxes than now!
Be available to talk to your child about changes in school, new friends, and other stressors your child may face as a result of the move, and keep an eye on any issues your child may have, such as lingering anxiety or loss of appetite. Consult your pediatrician with any concerns.
