It is often difficult for parents to prepare their family to move to a new address. They may have emotional attachment to the current location, such as friends and things they do not want to leave behind. It isn’t easy, but the following are a few things you can do to prepare your family for the big move.
Tell them your plan as soon as possible
One mistake you want to avoid is to have your children and other family members find out about the move from someone else. This surprise can be unsettling and painful to experience. You will want to tell them your plan to move to another address as soon as possible. It can help ease the discomfort of your family members regarding the move and help them accept the change.
Be clear as to why everyone needs to move
Your family members will want to know the reason for the move. Give them a clear explanation, as this can help make them understand your decision. Never avoid any question your family wants to ask. Show them the importance of the move and how it can benefit everyone.
Lay out the plan to your family members
Provide the details of the move with your family members. Give them a small description of the neighbourhood of the new house to make them feel excited and so they can prepare for the change. It can also help to tell discuss with them your plan on the date of the move. This includes how everyone should pack their belonging and how the removalists will transfer the furniture.
