Tips for Moving with Young Children

Moving is stressful for families. In some cases the home you are leaving is the only existence your child has ever known. It can be daunting, especially to little people, to say the least.

Tell your child(ren) as soon as you know you’re moving; don’t spring it on them at the last-minute. Give them time to adjust and expect tears and fears. Explain why you’re moving in terms they can understand for their age. Do you need more room? Are you relocating because of a new job?

If moving to a new city or state, go to websites that offer visual photos of the new community. You also can write to the local chamber of commerce or government offices and request printed materials to read with your kids ahead of time. Share photos and floor plans of your new home if possible and plan for the future as a family. Remain positive, even if you have fears yourself.

Be sure and pack lots of games, books or DVDs to keep children occupied if you are in for a long drive. Buy a new backpack or tote and put their favorite things inside. This way, they won’t have to look far to find items that bring comfort when you get to your new home.

PODS understands moving is stressful and offers flexible pick-up and delivery of its PODS containers when it is most convenient for families. Once your PODS container is delivered, keep it as long as needed to pack at leisure. When you’re done, simply call and schedule pickup and your belongings will be delivered to your new home on the day you specify.
