Format: Paperback
Written by social worker and mother of three Lori Collins Burgan, Moving with Kids: 25 Ways to Ease Your Family's Transition to a New Home is a no-nonsense practical guide to minimizing stress on the family, helping one's kids keep old friends and make new ones, create a sense of belonging in one's new community, and much more. Chapters cover basic precepts parents should internalize before, during, and after a move, from "Don't be afraid to throw your own goodbye party" to "Take deliberate steps to ease the transition to a new school" to "Keep in touch with old friends" and "Don't forget to take care of yourself." "When your children are feeling down before or after a move, find something to laugh about. Rent a funny video. Pull out the baby pictures. Take turns doing impressions of your favorite lines from movies or songs. When our family needs a good laugh, we often pull out the journal I keep of the cute things the kids have said." An absolute must-have for any family embarking upon the transition of a move.

This is an excellent book. My wife and I are relocating our family and we found it very helpful. Not everything in the book will work or apply to everyone who is moving, but the concepts and suggestions presented in the book are overall excellent.

I found this book to be extremely helpful and very encouraging. Using practical advice from other families who move frequently, Moving with Kids gave me peace of mind in how to handle the transition for my children, 10 & 13. Not only is it a fast read, but it is very engaging. I highly recommend this book for anyone moving, whether locally where school/neighborhood changes are involved, cross country or farther. There is something for everyone!! GREAT BOOK!!

Daughter with 3 kids ages 6, 4 and 1 had to move to another state quickly when she changed jobs and this book helped enormously. As she lived in TX and me in CA, the book arrived in just a couple days.

I was an Army brat removed every 2 to 3 years. I felt like an American nomad. Then I married a soldier and did to my kids what my parents did to me; moved every two to three yearse moved every 2 to 3. well the cycle continues my daughter married a soldier and had children and so I thought this would be a good look for her to understand how it is to move with children how to get them involved and how to make it not such a hard transition. It was great I think the Lord that somebody thought to

My husband and I will soon be moving with our two boys from Switzerland back to Colorado. I found this book to be helpful, as the kids have never undergone a move before, and this will be an ordeal for all of us. The book is very thorough and gives good examples and anecdotes that provide insightful support. I particularly liked the story about the same teacher providing extra help for one newcomer, while virtually ignoring another-- based heavily on early parental involvement. It would have been nice to have a list of questions to facilitate school selection, but perhaps that can come in another edition. In any case, it was worth it.

If you are moving long distance with older kids (maybe school age and older) this is going to be a great resource for you. Unfortunately, I'm moving locally with a toddler, so I didn't get much out of it.
