Explaining the decision to move house to your children can be a challenging task. These days, though, you’re nearly as likely to be justifying your choice to your 25 year old as to your toddler.

Moving is often a stressful time for everyone involved, and when you’re moving with children you’ll have to consider that it can be a lonely time as well. It can be difficult for a child to feel at home in a new environment without the familiar faces of their friends around and breaking into new social groups and relationships can be an intimidating prospect.

This is not only a fun way to involve your child in the packing process but also provides a sense of security as depending on their age they will choose their favourite things. Make sure your children have toys, which can be easily accessed to keep them entertained.
