Moving is both exciting and exhausting and will take an emotional toll on the whole family, especially the kids. As a former military mom, I can assure you the struggle is real. Although children are resilient and can benefit from the opportunity to adjust to new environments and adapt to new social structures, they can also experience negative disruptions with lasting effects if not guided and supported throughout the transition.

Have you ever relocated your family? How was the experience? Did you have other methods for helping your child(ren) transition? And if you’re planning to move, feel free to ask the questions we haven’t answered.
Happy home, happy kids!
