Moving During the School Year

If you have kids, I’m sure you have dealt with the stress of the back to school fiasco. But, what about the hassle of having to move with young children during the school year?

Unfortunately, not all moves are planned. Sometimes we have to hire an emergency moving service due to evictions, family emergencies, or other surprise situations. When short notice moves take place, your children may have to switch schools depending on whether you are moving locally or long distance. As a parent, it is important to be by your child’s side and support them throughout the moving process. Moving away from friends or even just moving from an environment that they have grown used to can be hard for children regardless of their age. So as a parent, how do you help your child with moving during the school year?

Tips for moving with children during the school year:

  • Understand that your child will have feelings. Although the move may be easy for you, understand that your child may be angry, upset, or act out due to the move. Chances are they will blame you. Be there for your child and let them know that you understand them. Changing schools is stressful enough, addressing their anxiety instead of ignoring it will help them through the transition process.
  • Be there for your child. Do not get caught up in the hassle of moving so much that you “forget” about your child. It is important to continue to talk to them and let them know that you are there. Keep them involved in the moving process and make them feel included. It may help develop an excitement towards that move.
  • Explain to them about making a good impression. Let them know that this is a chance to start over if they choose. If they were having a hard time at their old school, maybe they are looking forward to making a new and better impression. This is a time to make new friends, create new relationships, and make the first impression that they may have wished they had made in the past.

Every child will handle moving during the school year differently. Some will be thrilled, while others may struggle. We have many printable moving tips for parents that can help with various aspects of moving. For more information, or if you need to schedule a short notice move, contact us today!
