MILAN – Moving is one of the most stressful things in the world and it is not a theory, but it is the statistical data that speak. However, what is not taken into consideration many times is the fact that moving houses is not only a stress for adults, but also for children. Indeed, considering that often they do not quite understand why you have to move and are confused in the face of all the chaos that is created during a move, perhaps for them it is even worse. Initially we see them excited: going to see the new home, thinking about a new life is certainly exciting. But then in “packing” comes anxiety, melancholy, accompanied by the fear of the new that is unknown. As the saying goes, in short: “leaving the old for the new, I know what I am leaving but I don't know what I find”. In that “old” house (which is not necessarily said to be), a piece of heart is left, experiences have been made, emotions have been experienced and sorrow rises. It is so for everyone.
Reduce stress by relying on a specialized company
Already moving is in some way a small trauma for children, if you could at least avoid having to experience the stress of the bulk of the work, that is, dismantling furniture, moving them from one house to another, following the assembly would be a good thing. During this phase, moreover, not infrequently there is some unexpected event such as a door that is scratched, something that is damaged, some screws that are no longer found and situations of tension are easily created. It is to be avoided: for children, of course, but also for adults whose stress unconsciously pours out (willingly or not) on the little ones. How to make the move lighter? Relying on a specialized company that deals with removals. The formulas that these companies offer are different and therefore you can choose the one that best suits your needs, as well as your own pockets. Of companies like these there are many in the whole boot, so just look for the best in your area. Are you from Rome? Search on the search engine «removals Rome»And you will find a list of companies. But beware of those who rely on it: better to pay something more, rather than find yourself with damaged furniture or go beyond the established deadlines and have to pay a hotel.
Moving with children: things to watch out for
Moving, even if you go to a “better place”, is in any case a separation and for the little ones it is hard, especially because it was not their choice. Even if they appear enthusiastic, therefore, mom and dad must never underestimate the situation. Children need two things right now: safety and reference points. One of the most critical moments is the night, when children are more afraid and more sensitive. If the child is used to sleeping in a room with mom and dad, even in the new house at least for a first period it will have to be like this, otherwise he will immediately find himself hating the new home feeling abandoned. If, on the other hand, he is already accustomed to staying in his room, it would be good for the parent to accompany him until he has fallen asleep in his new bedroom. A night light will help him to orient himself and to have a point of reference in the night awakenings if there were any. We bring the things to which he is most attached to new home and arrange the things in his bedrooms as much as possible similar to how they were before.
