When is it time to relocate your family?

Cupid’s Advice:

Moving is never an easy thing to do, especially when it’s not just your things your packing up. Certain circumstances need to be taken into consideration when a family is added into the equation. Do you have children? Does your spouse have a job they can’t bare to leave? Is the rest of your family even in agreeance with the move? You may be ready for a drastic change, but you have to put your family first. Cupid has some advice:

1. School’s out: If you’re going to go through with this move, it’s best you wait until after your children are done with the school year. Wait until the summer before you pack up your family and move across town. Moving during a school year can have a negative impact on your child. His/her grades may suffer and they may feel left out around other kids their age. If you give your kid the summer to get used to a new environment, they’l be able to feel everything out and might even make a few friends along the way.

2. Short on time: If you’re moving because of a change in career, your new job might not give you enough time to get settled in before expecting you to return to work in your business suit. Moving at such a quick haste will disrupt your family’s daily routine, but if you’ve already talked about it with your partner and they support your decision, the move should run fairly smoothly.

3. You’re feeling cramped: Sometimes a house just gets too small. Your family may have grown over the past few years and you no longer have any extra space for yourself. If this is your reason for moving, wait until the rest of your family is free of responsibilities. You’ll have some extra hands to help you pack up those boxes in the moving van.
