Relocating your household can be a challenging endeavor, particularly when it involves changing schools for your children. Often, our attention as adults is drawn to financial matters, the stress of administrative tasks, and the various complexities of the relocation process. Meanwhile, children tend to be more attuned to the emotional dimension of moving. It’s common for them to experience feelings of fear, sadness, and even anger in response to the prospect of moving. While these emotional reactions are entirely normal, it’s important to acknowledge that frequent moves, especially at certain stages of development, could potentially give rise to difficulties related to academic performance, emotional well-being, and interpersonal skills.
