Moving is a big part of life, especially for families, who have to face the many challenges that come with it. Relocating to a new house, neighborhood, and city can be hard for parents, but most often, children see it as a disruptive and difficult experience. Children, especially younger ones, have a harder time coping with all the new things when they are not part of the decision and don't understand why certain events are happening.

Don't leave everything to the last minute
