Moving with Children

If you think moving is hard on adults, imagine what it’s like for children. They’re starting over and trying to meet new friends while getting used to a new home, neighborhood, and school. Think about your children’s specific needs before, during, and after the transition and you’ll make a big difference in how your children feel about the move and how they adjust afterwards.

Before the Move: Preparing

Give your children a chance to express their feelings, and be honest about your own feelings. Children who have a chance to express themselves work through their doubts more easily.

Help children compile a list of phone numbers and addresses of friends, relatives, and other important people. Knowing they can stay in touch with these people will be reassuring.

Take your children to your new home before you move and explore the new neighborhood and town or city together.

Try to line up some activities in which your child can participate after the move: a sports team, music lessons, or a scouting troupe. Not only will activities like these keep your children involved but they will help the kids feel like part of a group.

During the Move: Remembering What’s Important

Stay as upbeat and calm as you can. Your own mood will impact your children’s moods.

Involve your children in the packing. Older children can put their own belongings in boxes, and children of all ages will enjoy decorating the boxes containing their things.

Stick to your routines. Have meals at the same times you normally do.

Don’t pack things that your children treasure. Take special blankets, favorite books, and other prized items in the car or on the plane with  you.

Help your children say goodbye to the important people in their lives. For their friends, a party is a fun way to celebrate the friendship.

For many families, moving day means a long car trip or cross-country flight. Prevent backseat blues and airline angst by adding travel fun and games to your plans.

Allow you child to bring an album with pictures of their old home and friends. This will allow them to express their feelings and provide you with a chance to reassure your child that it is natural to feel loss and initial discomfort with such a big change.

After the Move: Getting Settled

To make your new home seem more like home, hang your child’s or family portrait in a prominent location or create a tabletop display of family photographs.

Take pictures of the new home, neighborhood playmates, family members, and school. Start a new family album to show there is fun and family togetherness available at the new home.

Don’t spend too much time unpacking–at least not right away! In the first few days, take time to enjoy your new home with your family. Take walks and check out local restaurants.

Above all, listen. Be there when your children get home after the first day at their new schools, even if it means having to leave work early. Ask often how things are going, and take time to listen when they talk.

Tips on Packing!

If you are moving  and aren’t sure where to begin, take a look at some of these tips for successful packing.

Use strong containers that are in good condition and can be secured tightly with twine or strapping tape. these can usually be purchased from your moving company. Purchase special boxes for dishes, wardrobe, and other special items.

Label each box with its contents, which room it should go in, whether it is fragile, and whether it should be loaded last so as to be unloaded first.

Don’t load more than 50 pounds into any one box, and make sure that the weight is evenly distributed.

Cushion contents with newspaper or other packing material to prevent breakage. Use newsprint paper or tissue paper for items that might be soiled by newpaper. Towels and cloth napkins are great for wrapping fragile items.

Pack books tightly in small boxes. Alternate bindings and wrap valuable books separately. Have your rugs and draperies cleaned before moving and leave them in their wrappings for easier handling.

Remove all breakables and liquids from drawers and pack them separately. Seal medicines and other containers to prevent leaking and pack them in a leak-proof bag or container.

Pack linens and clothing in drawers, but don’t overload them.

Carry all valuables with you. Do not pack jewelry, documents, coin or stamp collections, or anything that will be difficult to replace. The contents of a safety deposit box can be moved for you by your bank.

Moving Preparation Checklist-Tips

Tips on Having a Garage Sale!

1. Allow plenty of time–three or four weeks–to prepare for the sale.

2. Choose a date that will not conflict with holidays.

3. Weekends are more convenient for more people than weekdays.

4. Your sale is likely to attract more people if you join together with neighbors in an effort to have more merchandise. Some homeowners’ groups are sponsoring neighborhood sales that are proving popular!

5. Practical household goods are popular items; adult clothing has less appeal.

6. Merchandise your items attractively in neat, clean surroundings.

7. Cluster like items together; place the more desirable items in the back of the garage so browsers are urged to look at other merchandise on their way to the most popular items.

8. All items should be clean, polished, and in good repair.

9. Locate your appliance table near an outlet so customers can try before they buy!

10. Be sure that there is adequate parking space and a place to load large items.

11. Have plenty of bags and boxes for packing and newspapers for wrapping glass items.

12. Place a classified ad in the local paper. Include 3-4 items for sale, directions, and other details.

13. Take advantage of free publicity on bulletin boards in grocery stores and other public places.

14. Provide directional signs to your property.

15. If your home is listed for sale, have flyers about your home available for people to take.

16. Visit other sales to form an idea on how to price things. Be prepared to bargain down your prices.

17. Post a notice that all sales are final and payment must be cash.

18. Have plenty of change in a cash box that is kept in a protected spot. Keep a record of sales, especially when there are several sellers. One recording method that is simple and efficient is to use small white stickers for prices. When an item is purchased, remove the sticker and place it next to the name of the seller on a piece of paper.

19. On a hot day, have ice water or lemonade available so people will stay longer, and on cold days serve hot chocolate.

20. Tell your real estate agent about some of the major items in your sale. She/he may have a client looking for just that thing! One person’s trash is another’s treasure!
