A change of house is a huge change for the little ones, and it is indicated that this happens in the calmest way possible for them not to be surprised and suffer too much.
Here are some tips:
1- Do your best to get the kids to know the new home before moving there. Explain that this place will be the new family home and try to show the good points of the house
2- Whenever you refer to change, speak in a positive tone and always remember all the cool things you will have in your new home. But remember: create a positive expectation, but without setting a very high expectation, so that the child also does not become anxious and suffer.
3- When organizing things in the new home, prioritize first arrange the environments that the children attend most (such as your bedroom and living room). So if you do not have time to put things into practice before the little ones know the new home, at least the spaces they would most like will be fine.
4- Try to make the new kids' room remember the old place. If you do not change the décor, do your best to leave the furniture with the same mood, then you will be less surprised. But if you choose a new decoration, use some objects to which the child is most attached to make him feel more secure.
5- Finally, the golden tip: a lot of dialogue and patience. Ever. Change is not easy for younger children. Although they adapt more quickly than you think, at first they are extraordinary and may have behaviors they did not have before, such as taking more time to sleep, not wanting to stay in the bedroom, waking up in the middle of the night. That is why it is so important always to talk and explain the news that is happening so that the child can be reassured when a moment of insecurity strikes.
