Good news: having a strategy for moving day that is tailored to your circumstances helps your kids!
Bad news: there is no ‘right way’ to do moving day with kids. Sorry, I wish there was!
The first time we moved house (and regions) with kids, I was 34 weeks pregnant and we had a toddler. Possibly not the best plan but hey, life happens! The second time we moved house (and regions – again!) we had two kids under 5. Both times, we planned a strategy that fitted with our children’s needs, as well as what was possible. Big thanks to my mum for her help! Moving day can be very busy and stressful. It can also last longer than a day! Here are my research-based ‘5 top tips’ for having a successful moving day(s) with kids.
