How to Move With Children of All Ages

Moving is hard for you, and can often be even harder for your children. Keeping these tips in mind will help make the move smoother for you and your entire family.

  • Infants 1 – 12 Months Old: Make sure your infant has a safe space to play and rest while you pack. A crib, toys, and baby monitor are all good things to make sure this safe space has.
  • Toddlers 1 – 3 Years Old: Toddlers have a short attention spans and may be likely to throw a tantrum or two for no good reason. That is why it’s a good idea to give them a “special job” when you’re packing to keep them interested. Toddlers love to feel like they are acting like grownups.
  • Children 4 – 12 Years Old: Make sure you allow your children to have some quality time to say goodbye to any friends they might be leaving behind. This will make the difficult moving process that much easier for your children to handle.
  • Teenagers 13 – 18 Years Old: Teenagers can be a big help with the right incentive. Try asking them to throw a garage sale for the items you want to get rid of, and offer them a share of the profits for their hard work.
