Making a decision of moving to NYC with children

The kids tend to thrive on routine and familiarity. Relocating to a big city like New York can get them emotionally upset, particularly if you are moving from a smaller town or from another state. Children are typically not thrilled by such a phenomenon. In fact, they hardly ever enjoy this kind of change. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to ease the process and avoid stress during the move. So as you consider moving to NYC with children, put on the scales the benefits of that change against the comfort that established neighborhood, school, and social life give your kids. If your family has recently dealt with a major life change, like divorce or death, it is better to postpone the move. If possible, give your kids time to accommodate.

There can be many factors and reasons that have made you decide about moving. You maybe aren’t excited and happy about it, try to be positive anyway. During times of transition, a parent’s attitudes can affect kids in a big amount. Your attitude about moving and your willingness to let your children share in the experience will influence their feelings.

Include kids in the planning of the move

When moving to NYC with children, involve kids in the planning as much possible as you can. This will make them feel like participants in the process. Both house-hunting process or the search for the new schools in New York. Also, it can make them feel more familiar with the move and less like it is being forced on them. If relocating to the other part of the city, take your children to visit their future house and get to meet their new neighborhood NYC. Handling the time leading to the move has a big impact on how easily your kids will adapt.

Have a family meeting

Don’t mind the circumstances and be aware that the most fundamental way to get your kids ready for a move is to talk about it. Try to give them as much information about the move as soon as possible. Answer their questions sincerely, and be prepared to both positive and negative feedback. Probably the relocation will make your family life even better, but the kids can’t always get this fact. They may be focused just on the terrifying perspectives of the change. For toddlers and preschoolers, begin by calmly breaking the news about a month in advance. This will be enough time to procedure the information, but not too much. This will give your children an opportunity to think about all the changes on time.

Ask them for their opinion

Involve your children in the selection process of the new home, especially if they are older. The moment you tighten the choices to two or three houses, you should get a feedback from your child. If possible, take them to see the homes. If you are moving to another city, show them photos of each home, describe the neighborhoods and take a virtual tour onlineAsk them about their opinion for each house. Assure them that you will carefully listen to them and considerate their opinion when making the final decision. Once you choose the house, don’t stop telling them all the details about the house. Have a little celebration once you know you the house is yours.

When moving with kids, there are big chances that you will have to deal with more stress than when moving by yourself. That is why we are giving you the list of thing you might forget when moving to NYC with children.

Allow your kids to ask questions and make suggestions

Let your kid participate in picking out the house or suggesting a color for his room. They need to feel like they are one of the main parts of moving. Allow your child to ask questions, and express likes and dislikes about moving. This will help them adjust and will make the move to Los Angeles a lot easier. We know that it’s not always peaches and cream with kids. But, they must know they can come to you. Especially if they are not adapting well, by you letting them be part of the process. There will be mixed emotions without a doubt, whether your kid is a teenager or a child.

Moving with children is not an easy process, especially with teens. They have to make new friends, fit in new school, adapt to a new NYC neighborhood, etc. Even if your children are excited about the move, don’t underestimate how difficult some of the losses may be. Especially if the relocation means separating from someone they love and depend on, like a carer or a grandparent.
