The trouble with family removals

Or how removals can affect your kids

It goes with out saying, that moving house is a large upheaval. The process of taking everything that you own, packing them in to faceless boxes and moving them to a strange new place can be terribly exciting for an adult who has made the decision to move, but for those who are not instrumental in the decision, it can be rather less fun, in all honesty. Taking care of your family whilst moving may seem like something that any parent would do, but it is often easy to neglect them in a way,

without ever realizing. The removals process is a tricky and extended one, so it is well worth looking at how much of your time it takes up, and also how much of the time that you would usually have dedicated to your loved ones it gets in the way of.

Think about it like this; you are moving for reasons that are entirely justified; you may need to down size for monetary reasons, house removalwhich is extremely sensible, or perhaps you are doing the opposite, and moving to a place or home that you feel you have earned because you love it, and you have worked hard for such an opportunity. Either way, these are not things that younger children will have any understanding off, and even older kids will not be completely in the loop, as they are not on the same level as you are in terms of what your finances are like, or what your tastes are! All they will be concentrating on is the aspects of their lives that are affected, like missing friends, places and school. If you are not moving far, then this may not be an issue, but there are still things to look out for.

Other tricky part of removals with big family is moving kid’s toys to new place. To reduce stress for kids, before the moving day talk with your kid’s about moving to new house or apartment. If you have few kids, that means lots of toys: few bicycles, doll houses, scooters ect, all these fragile toys sometimes could take all loading space, so make sure the toys come with the last delivery in order all family could go with all toys, this way the kids wouldn’t feel that someone just taking their toys. Also during the move leave the most favorite toys for the kids, so the kids could feel comfortable and safe.     

These sorts of issues can not really be helped, as the West End move is going to take place whether your kids are upset or not, in all essence. You can however give them back some power by making it seem like they have made the decision themselves. Offering up all of the positives over the negatives will ensure that they are excited about the move, and will hopefully override their distress about leaving the old house behind. You may find that this process is rather difficult if you are not tentative about your decision in the first place, as they will sense that they are just being coddled.

Dislocation is only one aspect of the move that may distress your children. The fact that you are so busy with the move will mean that you are not spending as much time with them as you have in the past. Being aware of this is half of the battle, so ensure that you do not overwork yourself when you are at home, and be clever about continuing family traditions, as other wise, the move may take over the happiness of the family altogether.

Think of it like this, your child may be upset about moving house, but if they then feel that the process of moving house is also meaning that they get less attention from you, then it will be a double blow to them, like insult to injury! Be careful however of overdoing it on the reparations, as some children will react terribly to the notion of over compensation. Smothering your kids with attention because you feel guilty will only further alienate you from them, so it is essential that you are careful with how you do make up for the potentially lost time together.
