I’m a Social Scientist and for the last 18 years I have researched children’s experiences of moving home. I have worked with children who have moved home for many different reasons, across different distances, and in different ‘types’ of families:
I have always been fascinated by people’s experiences of moving. I moved home with my family five times before I was age 12. I have moved home (and cities) with my own young children twice too. This isn’t because I love moving home! It’s probably for similar reasons to you – the way we live today often means we have to move and sometimes across long distances.
Rather than let a lot of unique information about how to have a successful home move with kids stay in academic journals (or never be published) I decided to get it to the people who need it. If you are reading this, then hopefully that is you!
