You've found that perfect house, and now it time to get packing! But what about the kids? No matter where you move, it can be upsetting for the kids. So how can you make the ordeal go smoother?

Have a Family Meeting. Treat the kids to a favorite meal and casually talk about the move. This will give them the opportunity to address their concerns in a relaxed environment.

Involve Them in the Process. If you make your children part of the process, it will go a long way to smooth the transition. You can go through the house and get rid of all the unnecessary junk that has accumulated over the years. Get the kids to help you decide what can be trashed, donated or sold.

Help Your Children Learn About Where They’re Moving. Kids usually love to learn and use the internet.  take advantage of that to help them learn about their new community. They can check out the local schools and school district. A website with pictures of their new school would be helpful and help them get a sense of where they’ll be attending school.

These are just a few suggestions on how to make moving with children easier. You can find more tips here.
