How Does Moving House Affect A Toddler

Moving House is an exciting and emotional experience for any adult and when you are moving with a toddler the experience can become more intense. Your toddler will get out of their comfort zone and have to get used to a new school, new friends, and a new house. The moving experience can be as stressful for toddlers as it is for adults as well as there are Unexpected Moving House Expenses that you might face.

Toddlers may feel anxious but they don’t have the vocabulary or self-awareness skills to express their feelings and you may see them having sleep issues, decreased appetite, and regressive behaviors ( thumb sucking and bedwetting). Moving home to Geelong will bring new opportunities for your kids but also new challenges. It is important to increase their curiosity and make them feel safe and confident about this new experience. These are some ways you can help your kid accept the change and benefit from it:

  • Talk to your toddler about the move weeks before it happens to help him process and prepare for it.
  • Let your toddler say goodbye to the friends and walk through each room of the house one last time to help develop closure.
  • Once you are in your new home, take your toddler to local playgrounds where they can meet more friends.

Moving can be an overwhelming process and when you have a child it can be an emotional rollercoaster. Hire a professional removalist company to do all the hard work for you and make the process quicker. You will be available to your toddler to help them create a positive attitude for your toddler and enjoy the new opportunities.

The toddler years are great for the social, cognitive, and emotional development of your kid and it is important to help your kid benefit from the change. Our company will make the moving experience enjoyable for both you and your toddler.
