Change of Scenery

Early this morning, I was perusing the Houston Chronicle and stumbled upon an article that just reminded me of how much our city has grown. So many people are moving to Houston, Texas from around the world.

Well, I had the pleasure of relocating a beautiful family from Connecticut to Houston, and it’s just so good to hear and read all the wonderful things they have to say about my city. Here’s a few things to keep in mind when you’re relocating to a new city, and relocating with children:

  1.      .. Children can have mixed emotions about a move. It’s not about having just one big talk with them. Parents should probably have a series of talks with them. It may take them just as long as it has taken you to feel good about a move.
  2.         Use the move as awesome bonding experience and a resilience builder.
  3.         Find the perfect home; take everyone into consideration, even the children. Give and take a little bit. Try to make sure everyone is comfortable.
  4.         And finally, get out find things to love about your new city. It’ll make the transition a lot easier if you can go out and find/taste the best ice cream you’ve ever had in life! J

Until next time,
