Make Moving Houses Easier on Your Children (And Yourself!)

Family who just moved into a new home

Kids can sometimes be fussy when in a car. This is especially true and evident during long-haul road trips, which can be the case when you are moving houses.

Monster Moving and Storage is dedicated to everyone’s comfort when you are hiring moving services in Irvine. Follow these tips and never hear your kids whine or cry during the whole moving process!

1. Tell them stories about the new house

Kids can sometimes be difficult to convince when it comes to drastic changes. Whether it’s a new school, new house or even new clothes, it can be hard to keep them from crying when telling them that there will be some changes that should be implemented.

Always talk to your children and let them know about the new house. Tell them how exciting it is going to be and that they will have lots of space to play around.

Let them know about the amenities and what they can do inside the house and in the neighborhood. Keeping them in the loop will keep them hyped up and excited for the move.

2. Give the new home a few visits before moving

Tour your kids around the new home and let them know that this will be their new house. Give them examples of what they can do in and around the area. You can also take them for a walk or a drive around the neighborhood so they would know what to expect.

This will give them an idea of what’s in store for them, and this will also give them a visual of what you are talking about.

3. Pack your children’s things last

Pack all of your belongings first before your children’s things. They would most likely want to play with their toys until moving day comes, so make sure to keep those intact until you need them to put them in their respective boxes.

Let your kids know that they will be seeing their toys again after a few hours and that those toys will be somewhere safer and bigger. This will make them more excited about the move and the new house.

Always explain things to your children before going ahead and proceeding with the move. Be patient, and the rest will follow!
