If you’ve got a house move looming on the horizon, but you’re unsure whether it’s the right thing to do for your family, it can seem like a tricky decision to make. Moving house can be a lot of stress, money, and upheaval, for what might seem like minimal gains. In fact, moving house can have many positive effects on a family, not least that it might get them a nicer home! If you’re considering moving house, maybe some of these positive possible outcomes might help you to make a decision.
There are opportunities for a new career
Many young families are forced to move house because a parent is offered their dream job, but the downside is that it’s on the other side of the country. And many young families let this put them off taking their dream job. Actually, it can be a really positive move – not only does it mean better income for the family, but it could potentially mean happier mom and dad in the long run too. And happier mom and dad means happier kids!
They can make new friends
Some children struggle with the friends they have or the other kids in their school. Maybe they’re the target of bullying, or they just don’t find it easy making friends with other children. A house move can help them to put that behind them, and give them the impetus they need to start making new friends, even if they were bullied before. Moving house can even give them gumption, and make them more confident!
Moving closer to family
If you got the opportunity to move closer to family, most people would grasp it with both hands. Having grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins nearby as your children grow up can be great for both the parents and the kids. Not only do you get local babysitters, but your kids get friends in their cousin. Along with the moving company, your family will be the most helpful people in your move, and great for helping the kids to settle in. Many people make a move back towards their parents once they have children, for a very good reason.
There is more space to play
When you choose to upsize, it’s an obvious positive for the whole family that there more space. Not only is this more space to store things and more space in which to live, but it also means more space for the kids to play, so it’s everyone’s dream home. If you have the opportunity to move to a place with a large outdoor area – take it!
It could be a better area
Moving to a new area could mean moving to a nicer area. Maybe there is a lower crime rate, a preferential climate, or even a particular architectural style you enjoy. Perhaps it’s just a friendlier neighborhood, but all of these things can be a great draw for an area when you’re moving. Maybe the ultimate draw, though, is the local schools and health facilities – make sure you check those out before you commit to the move.
Moving house isn’t just about taking the kids away from their friends and uprooting the entire family; it can also have some really positive effects on everyone.Tammie~
