Your family´s move can be an exciting time for your children and for you. It can also be a stressful and sad time. Your child may have different feelings about your family´s move: scared about going to a new school, excited about your new home, sad about leaving old friends or angry with you about moving.
There are several things that you as a parent can do to support your child through this tough time.
Below you will find a checklist provided by Jennine L. Moritz, Ph.D. & Ann V. Deaton, Ph.D. of Coping Kids, to remind you of some of the important things to do before and after a move (and tips on what to do to help your child cope with this life event). Remember, if you are going to be available to help your child, it is also important to support yourself during this move.
