How to Motivate Your Kids to Help You Move

Household Moving Tips for Parents

Children often do not like changes, especially if they feel comfortable around their friends and classmates. This is why the role of a parent to motivate them to move and help in the whole packing and relocation process is really complicated. Household moving is definitely not a simple task, so without the dedication of your whole family and professional help from licensed movers, it is impossible to be done fast.

If you want to learn a few tricks that can help you convince your kids that moving is actually good for them and gain their attention and enthusiasm, directing it into packing and cleaning, then this post is just what you need to read. Here are our tips:

  • Organize a trip to the neighborhood where you are about to live in. Make sure to do something fun with your kids there, so they can see that their lives won’t get boring after moving there.

  • Organize a farewell party for your children and their friends from school in the current neighborhood that you live in. Give them a proper chance to say goodbye to each other and exchange contact details if they have not done it so far. In the digital times that we live in, staying in touch with old friends is not as hard as it used to be, so you’d better explain them that they should not worry about that at all.

  • Promise to visit your old town or neighborhood of residence at least once a month after you move so that your kids won’t feel the big change instantly but step-by-step.

  • To motivate them to participate in the household moving process, you can promise them to go see a fun movie together as a reward for their packing work. Another thing you can do is offer them a dinner at their favorite burger place if they pack all of their toys well and clean their room afterwards. There are plenty of rewards that you can think of which will definitely have a highly motivational effect.
