Five Tips for Moving Families

Five Tips for Moving Families

Moving to a new neighborhood, county or state can be a hectic process, especially with young children. Preparing kids for a move is challenging, but JW Cole & Sons of Florida Inc. has you covered.

1. Keep the level of enthusiasm high

Introduce the kids to your new home or share pictures or the house, neighborhood and school beforehand. Narrate the fun activities offered in your new community and make the new environment a place they'll look forward to. Keep the kids' spirits high through the upheaval of a move and capitalize on unexpected thrills.

2. Maintain open lines of communication.

Open communication with your kids and family is critical during a move. Acknowledge that a move will affect kids and may induce fear. Involve them in conversations, recognize their questions and try to avoid potential meltdowns.

3. Label boxes clearly and accordingly.

Properly labeling boxes saves time and effort. Keep moving boxes organized and label them room by room. Remember to set aside favorite toys for the trip and do your best to find particular items after the big move. By including specific details about the contents of a box while labeling, necessities are easy to find and at the forefront of the unpacking list.

4. Time the move.

Choose a moving time that best accommodates schedules.

5. Don't hesitate to ask for help.

If family and friends are available and willing to help, let them. You'll accomplish a lot more in a short period of time and it's meaningful to share the memories with loved ones.
