As human beings, we can get used to almost anything. Even if the thing in question isn’t quite how we would like it, we have ways of subconsciously adjusting our mindset and overcoming how initial aversion to it.
However, once we have finally gotten used to that thing, having it just taken away from us can have a very powerful psychological effect on us.
This is more so the case when we are talking about moving from one place to another. The longer your family has spent in one location, the harder it will be to say goodbye to that place, even if the new location is better on all levels than where you are coming from.
That being said, you likely moved in the first place because you had to. As such, you have to do what you can to get your family adjusted to the new situation of things.
Down that road, some things that you can do include:
Encourage a Tour around the New Neighborhood
You can pique the interest of your family in the new location by having them take a walk around it. This is a simple yet highly effective way to take their mind off the move.
Keep All Essentials within Close Reach
When members of your family need to use something in the new location and it isn’t within easy reach like it used to be in the old place, it can trigger powerful feelings of loss.
All of this you can easily avoid when you take the time to plan well and ensure that all the things your family will need during the adjustment period are not difficult for them to find. That way, they can know that things will work out here too!
