5 Tips For Making Mid-School Move Easier For Your Kids

Life has a way of throwing major surprises and curveballs at us, and moving can easily be one of those stress points, especially when the move happens during the middle of the school year. While it’s less of an issue if you’re moving across town, moving to a new city can make the process even more of a challenge for the entire family. Once you’ve found a Colorado moving company to transport your belongings, incorporate these tips to help make your mid-school year move as easy as possible.

Maintain Your Routine

Even older kids can quickly get stressed during a move if their daily routines are interrupted too much. If at all possible, try to keep things as normal as you can. If you gather as a family to watch a particular show or have pizza night every Tuesday, maintain those traditions. Even if everything else seems hectic, these little routines give your child something to look forward to and something familiar to hold on to even in the midst of packing.

Get Them Involved

Rather than going through their belongings yourself and deciding what to keep or discard, get them involved. Have them go through old toys, books, and clothing to see if there’s anything they’re willing to get rid of. Once everything has been sorted, have them help with packing up the boxes. This way, they’ll know where their belongings are once they get to the new property while also helping them maintain a sense of control over their space. You can even go over the packing and moving guide to help them understand what needs to be done with the rest of the house.

Look for Activities In Your New Town

For younger kids, it’s often easier to make friends in the middle of the school year. However, for teens and young adults, the adjustment can be more difficult. Rather than letting them feel alone at school, look for activities in the community they might enjoy. If your child loves soccer but missed the school’s tryout window, look for a municipal league they can join. If they’re passionate about comics and gaming, look for local game stores that offer teen-friendly events. This way, they’ll have a chance to meet like-minded kids their age without the pressure of a new school getting in the way.

Go Exploring

Getting kids comfortable with their new hometown is almost impossible if all they see is their new neighborhood. Once you’re settled into the new house, take your kids around town and explore a bit. Try some new restaurants, look for new playgrounds, and head over to the local library. The sooner they start to recognize their surroundings, the more relaxed they’ll become, making the entire transition easier.

Stay Positive

Ultimately, much of your child’s attitude about the move will be a direct reflection of how you’re handling the transition. When you’re stressed, your emotions directly impact your child’s mood. Whenever possible, try to stay positive. If your kids, especially younger ones, see you being optimistic about moving to a new place, they’ll be more likely to share your attitude. If they express concerns, do your best to calm their fears and talk with them about why they’re feeling that way. The more insight you have into how they’re feeling, the better prepared you’ll be to help them adjust once the move is over.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
