Moving can be stressful for kids, whether it is a close move or a far one. It is important to talk to kids as soon as you know that you will be moving. When having that discussion, it is important to know that kids may be upset and angry. One way to make the preparation easier for them, is to take them to visit the city they will be moving to. Another thing that can help, is letting them make decisions, such as choosing their new bedroom.
