Whether their new home is across town or across the country, kids often have a difficult time moving. Every year, thousands of children leave behind a familiar community, friends, and school to face the unknown. Moving is stressful for parents too, as they not only have to prepare themselves, but must also help their children cope with these changes. Moving with Kids offers 25 practical and inspiring tips to help parents ease their children’s transition and make the move a positive experience. Through her own experiences as a mother of three whose family has moved multiple times, as well as through interviews with other families who have moved frequently, Lori Collins Burgan provides parents with valuable, action-oriented advice. Topics include giving kids a sense of control and involvement in the move, making the physical move less stressful, and creating a sense of belonging in their new home.
Written with busy parents in mind, Moving with Kids consists of 25 concise chapters, allowing readers to quickly and easily find the information they are looking for. This book is a great resource for parents whose careers necessitate frequent moves, military families, or anyone looking to reassure and help children through this period of significant changes.
