Advice for Moving With Kids From Your Realtor

Plan Ahead

One of the best things you can do for your own sanity and your children’s safety during moving day is locking down childcare beforehand. You’ll want to do this a few weeks in advance so you’re not scrambling to find a sitter at the last minute. You have enough on your plate already with the move.

The night before the big day, you’ll want to pack a moving day/first night bag for the new house. This bag should contain all the essentials to keep your kids safe, happy, and occupied during the chaos of moving. Necessities like medications, food, formula, and clothes are important, but you’ll also want to pack things like toys, pacifiers, books, and other items to keep the kids entertained while you’re busy with the move. Plus, your kids will then have some familiar items for their first night in the new house.


Getting your kids to help with packing is a great way to keep them occupied during the hectic moving process, and it’ll get the job done quicker. For younger children, it’s best to sort through their belongings beforehand. For toys that you don’t see your kid using anymore, use this as an opportunity to teach your child about giving and charity. Once you’re down to just the ‘keep’ pile, have your kids help pack it up.

Older children can sort on their own or with guidance, depending on the child. A good incentive to get older kids to not hold onto every single one of their belongings is to have them to sell things they don’t want to take anymore and allow them to keep the money. Reducing clutter before the move will make things easier.

Be Patient

This is a tough one, but in the end it will be beneficial for you and your children if you do your best to keep your cool. If you’re exuding negative energy, your kids will pick up on it and become even more difficult to deal with than before.

In the week before you move, a good way to conserve your energy and keep the vibes at home positive is to pick your battles when it comes to your kids. If you let them watch a little more TV this week or let them have an extra cookie before bed, it won’t be the end of the world.
