Moving to a New Home

Q: “We are moving to a new home in a few weeks. How can we make this huge change easier on our toddler?”

A: Moving is disruptive for everyone in the family, especially young children. To increase your child’s sense of security, talk to him about why you are moving, show him your new home and talk about the things that won’t change just because you are moving.

If possible, pack up his stuff last before moving, and unpack it first in your new home. Despite all the disruption, stick to your daily routines as much as possible.

Also, moving day can be a dangerous day for an active toddler. Try to have your child occupied with other activities outside the home during the vast majority of the move.
