Ayla and Julia with Moving Made Smooth, Inc.
Moving Made Smooth, Inc. employees are content to include your children that offer to carry a few boxes or smaller items to be loaded onto your moving vehicle. However, for safety and time related reasons, we ask that you keep a close eye on your children. It may even be easier on you to have a loved one or a daycare facility watch them for the day.
Most of the information we found on this topic directed us to preparing your children for the stress of moving and suggestions to alleviate it. The most important step is to talk openly and prepare your child/children for all the stages: before, during, and after. The sooner you can talk to them, the better.
Create ways for you kids to gently say goodbye to their old friends/relatives and involve them in their new surroundings. If your new home is very far away from the old one, the internet can be a great tool for your kids to keep in contact. There is great access to free video communication or perhaps the children can play games together online.
