Moving With Munchkins: Tips for Moving with Kids

Everyone knows that moving is stressful. There are just so many details to cover, not to mention countless boxes to pack and unpack. The whole process can also be especially difficult on children, particularly those with special needs—which makes it extra difficult for parents, too. However, if you involve your children in the process and the decisions, it can help them (and you) to be less stressed. Here’s how, courtesy of Future Business Ventures.

Find the Perfect Place

Obviously, the first step in any move is finding that perfect place—then the dreaded packing. The process can be overwhelming, so take it one piece at a time. Decide on your movers early. Especially if the move is weeks or even months away, take advantage of that time by getting an early start.
