Moves of any type and size may feel daunting, but moving with kids can be particularly stressful. Young children may not understand what is happening, while older children may be totally attached to their friends and schools. As a realtor, you’ve experienced all types of clients, and families are likely among the most common. Help your families prepare for smooth, seamless, and nearly stress-free moves with the following moving tips for kids.
Keep Your Kids in the Loop
Kids are inquisitive by nature and they’ll want to know what’s going on. Not only does telling them satisfy their curiosity, it also helps them to prepare for the move. It’s scary for kids to not understand what is happening around them, so make sure to keep kids informed with age-appropriate information regarding the move.
Involve Kids in Packing
Older kids can pack their own items easily enough, but for families with young children, it can be a bit more difficult to find ways to include them. One easy way to give include younger kids is to have them place color coded stickers on boxes. Designate blue stickers for bathroom items, green for kitchen stuff, and so on and let the kids have a great time “decorating” the moving boxes.
Say Hello to the Movers
When moving day arrives, be sure to introduce children to the head mover to alleviate any stress or fear of having strangers moving about the home.
Reach Out to Family and Friends
For those with infants or very young children, enlisting the help of family and friends can be a great way to streamline the moving process. Ask loved ones to keep the kids entertained to allow for uninterrupted packing or loading time.
