Tips by Removalists Melbourne on how to get your kids excited for your house move
As a blog writer, I have come across many articles highlighting the way of dealing with your kids throughout the relocation process (even I have written such articles.) Anyway, what else can we do rather than “handling your kids” when the house move is here. Saying goodbye to friends is a tough act for everyone including your kids. Anyway, we adults can understand what’s going on and why we should move. Removalists Melbourne has a different plan to handle this tough time. What if we can get our kids excited about the imminent house move? Yes, you can do it.
* The new world (home) is better: You were living in the current house for 3-4 years, and the time has come for a change. Don’t wait until the Removalists Melbourne staff arrives to inform the kids about the move. Tell them in advance, “Hey, darling. We are moving into a better home next month. There you have a bigger garden and a bigger room waiting for you.” In that way, you can make your kids feel excited about the new world. Then they would ask, “when mommy. We want to see it.” Now it’s the time to take them into your new home for an expedition. Show them their new rooms. There’s a bigger garden, so “mamma and daddy will bring a puppy.”
* Make them excited about the new neighborhood: Take them to the local park in the new neighborhood. All these years, your kids were cycling in the small garden, but now they have a beautiful park for cycling. It’s a positive change for your kids. Everybody likes to experience positive changes. A request by Removalists Melbourne: Don’t show your kids the new neighborhood for the sake of getting them excited about the new home. As their parents, you promised them that you will take them to the park, so keep up to the promise.
* Give your kids some control over the move: Do you like when you are forced to do something? No, nobody likes (especially, your teenaged children.) Make them a part of the moving process. Removalists Melbourne thoughts: Most of the kids/children fear about the new school and friends. Find a good school, and take your children to their future school for a visit. Let them talk with teachers and “future friends.” Let them pack their personal items and label “Anne’s items.” Let them choose their new furniture. Never leave the pets as your kids love it (some people do it, sadly.)
* We are still a family: It’s an important message to let your kids know. No matter to where we move, we will remain a family. You father will be your father, the mother will be your mother. So, the family is still there, but in a new home (a better home.) Well, it depends on the age of your children. Removalists Melbourne advice: Sometimes explaining the teenaged children is a nightmare. They resist the change, especially if they have a crush in the high school. Handle these situations carefully.
Some final words: Explain to your kids that the new change would change their lives positively. Well, getting them excited for the house move is a challenge. But the Removalists Melbourne says “You can do it.” Yes, you can do it.
