A Step-By-Step Guide To Moving With Kids And Pets

Date: 4/27/2017

Moving into a new home is stressful for families, but it can be particularly hard on the smallest members of the family. For children and pets especially, moving is a major shakeup, as routines are extremely important for them. Kids and pets, like all of us, value stability and familiarity in their lives. However, they are much more sensitive to disruptions in their routines than parents. Moving can be a traumatic experience for kids that can change their entire outlook on the world — it can even lead to problems socializing later in life if their anxieties are not dealt with appropriately. Likewise, pets can find their entire worlds turned upside down after moving into a new house, causing behavioral changes and making living with them much more difficult.

Even though a move can be arduous for children and pets, there are strategies to help them cope with the changes — and even help them see the move as positive. The accompanying guide to moving with kids and pets may not relieve all of their anxiety when it comes to changing homes, but it can help make their transition to their new neighborhood a lot smoother. Ultimately, this can help kids and pets process the move with less stress for them and for you.
