Edmonton Home Buying: Helping Your Children Plan For A Move

As a new parent, I have become more acutely aware of my son’s needs as he continues to grow and develop. Through this process and talking to some of my prospective buyers it has become more apparent that talking about how moving impacts one’s children is an important conversation to have. As an Edmonton REALTOR, I also feel it is my job to provide sound advice to my clients about how they can help their children transition from the “buying a home” phase to the “moving in” process.

As every child is unique, the way they take the news of moving will vary. Some kids will be excited, while others will be worried and feel that their whole world is changing. Not all kids are good with change, so discussing the possibility of moving ahead of time is key. Be sure to chat about the concept of moving and what it means as a family. Talk about all the exciting benefits of moving, stress that their “stuff” will be coming with them and how not only can they make new friends, but how you’ll maintain existing friendships.

It is important to recognize that some children will want to be a part of the whole process, especially as they get older, while others may be better off being part of certain aspects of the move.

There are some great books to introduce children to the concept of moving including: Big Ernie’s New Home, Louis & Bobo: We Are Moving, The Berenstain Bears’: Moving Day, My Very Exciting, Sort Scary, Big Move.
