Obvious really, but we mean tell them as soon as possible that you’re moving house. Most people need time to get used to a big new idea, and children are no different. So don’t delay putting them in the picture.
When you tell them, be clear about why you’re moving and highlight all the positive reasons for the switch, whether it’s getting their own bedroom, moving nearer to the sea, or just being down the road from grandparents. Hook into what they will find most appealing.
