Moving can be tough. The impact that it can have on you can be long and lasting. More than having a personal impact on your life, moving can have a lasting and deep impact on children especially. Whether it’s a change in their standard of living, a change in schools or just a change of environment moving can affect kids more than we think and realize.
Smaller children depend on predictability and security. These concepts are closely related to familiar faces and places. Older children are likely to feel that their social life is impacted when they move. Fitting in is incredibly important at this age for their social and emotional lives. Easing a child or teens moving experience can be incredible for them as kids and later in their lives as adults. There are a number of ways that a parent or guardian can get involved in their children’s comfort in a move. One of the first and most important items to address is to keep routines and home rules the same when you move to your new location. This will allow children to plant their roots faster and feel comfortable quicker as well.
Second item is to make their room comfortable to their standards. Making a child feel secure at home is important, but assuring that their place to ‘get away’ is up to their approval is incredibly important. Another item is assuring that you as a parent are doing all you can to cultivate new friendships with other kids. Doing things like opening your home to new friends and acquaintance and encouraging your children to interact and make plans with new kids are essential for your child’s transition.
Keeping up with old friends is also an essential part of keeping their social life healthy, as it allows them to build long term relationships and to stay connected to their old stomping grounds. When it comes to school, encouraging extracurricular activities is a great way to introduce your child to not only new friends but to new subjects and interests. More than anything that you can do for your child, you can be a constant part of their life and stay up to date with everything going on. This is the key essential element in your relationship with your child.
Following these simple tips will not only foster and cultivate your child’s needs for social interaction and living emotionally secure, but will make sure that you are giving them the chance to live up to their own potential.

Moving to Colorado: To Do Checklist
- Contact the Chamber of Commerce of your new town to ask about resources for newcomers.
- Register to vote in your new district.
- Take an afternoon to explore the public library: ask reference librarians about where to find maps of town, nearby nature trails, bike trails and more.
- Unaccustomed to the Colorado seasons? Consult with the local mechanic about when to use snow tires, winter wipers, etc.
- Purchase lots of hand lotion, lip moisturizer and sun screen.
- We know the climate and though it’s gloriously sunny here much of the time, it is very dry and those high altitude ultra violet rays can take a toll on your skin.
- Some cities in Northern Colorado require your pet to have a license – ask the city you’ll be a resident of.
- You might want to investigate ‘swamp coolers’ or ‘evaporative coolers’ – they’re inexpensive, eco-friendly alternatives to central air conditioning and perfect for our dry climate.
- Last but certainly not least, take a look around and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
“They” say it takes around a year to a year and a half to meet people in a new community that you can truly call a friend. Depending on where you move, it can take longer than that. Here are some tips to make it easier, and quicker!
Chamber of Commerce: Never rule out the chamber, even if you aren’t a business owner. Your local chamber can connect you to businesses you need, events to attend, and new people to meet that can make you feel at home. Check out Chambers of Commerce, USA Directory and Visitor Bureaus US Directory.
Another great way to meet people and get familiar with your new community is through Livability.com “Livability.com is an online portal connecting people seeking relocation information with some of the most livable communities in the United States.” This website is made for people relocating. They also include local food and a digital newsstand. What a wonderful resource for people moving!
