Moving through the eyes of a child

When adults decide to move, they usually do not ask the children if they want to move. Adults wish only good for the family and believe that moving to a new place will bring positive changes for the whole family. However, children can not always relate to the move with understanding, it depends on a number of reasons.



Some children can easily transfer to a new house, district or city. They are striving for new impressions, acquaintances. They are interested in settling in a new place, furnishing their new room. Such children are not afraid of changes; they regard them as new opportunities and prospects. Such children perceive moving as a holiday.

Other children, on the other hand, are afraid of changes, new acquaintances, changes in the world around them. They very painfully perceive parting with their friends, teachers, neighbors. Such babies are usually bound and closed. They are aware of how much time and effort they will have to spend in order to make new friends and win the favor of teachers at a new place. The news of the upcoming move puts them in shock. There are even cases when parents are forced to lead a child to a psychologist in order to get specialized help.

Moving through the eyes of a child


Each child is individual and only parents can know their child’s features of character and take into account these features preparing a child for moving. In this case, it is about the emotional preparation of the child for the move. Parents have a serious task - to adjust the child to positive.

The child needs to be told why the family should move, where you are moving. Prepare for this conversation:

On the eve of the move, it is very useful for the child to participate in the process of preparing for the move-he packs his toys, books and other things. Try to make it in a game form. For each packaged box, praise the baby for his help.

We hope that you will succeed and the move will be easy and painless for the child. Good luck!
