There is nothing worse for a teenager then being told that they will be moving away. Moving away from everything they know and all of their friends can be extremely unpleasant for any teen. The best course of action is to have open communication, let them talk about their feelings, let them throw a going away party. Also, have them help you pick out home decor or anything for your new home as this will help them accept this enormous change of life.
- Telling a teenager you’re moving is hard for them since they have established themselves where they are.
- You will want to have some compassion for your teen during this time, since this is hard for them.
- Let them ask as many questions as possible and you can even let them throw a going away party.
“The stereotype that teenagers will resist anything their parents suggest might never ring truer than when you announce that the family will be moving.”
