If you’re planning to move to a new home with a toddler, there are ways to make the transition easier. 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’re moving.
- Show her your new home and talk about the things that won’t change just because you’re 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 with your child as much as possible.
Moving day can be a dangerous day for an active toddler. If possible, try to have your child occupied with other supervised activities outside the home (such as with a caregiver or relative) during the vast majority of the move.
