Moving house is a major change for children as well as adults.
Your home is an important point of reference and at times moving to a new house can be a traumatic experience that is difficult to deal with.
Here is how you can help your children to quickly get used to the new environment.
1. EXPLAIN THE REASONS FOR THE CHANGE
Children are very curious and receptive. They need to be reassured and above all prepared to deal with the change. This is why it is important to involve them in what is about to happen. Explain your reasons for the move to the children and how you are going to arrange it – this will help them to overcome the initial sense of confusion.
2. ORGANIZE A VISIT
Shortly before the move, organise a visit to the new house along with your children. This will help them to familiarize themselves with the environment, get acquainted with their new room and feel more at ease in a place that they do not yet consider as “home”.
3. TURN THE MOVE INTO A GAME
Involve the children from the outset, adopting the “treasure hunt” technique.
Unpack the boxes with their help, transforming the task into a fun game that will entertain them and help them to become familiar with the new environment.
4. AVOID MESS
Children are very affected by mess. Seeing their valued objects packed inside boxes is not easy to accept. To avoid stacking boxes in a corner, while waiting to decide what to do with them, use the Casaforte storage unit rental service. Choose the space you need to store excess furniture and finally think about relaxing together as a family.
