Our next series of articles will provide some tips to help prepare your family for a military move.

Be Open and Honest

Moving can be extremely emotional for the family, especially if they have developed good friendships and have ties to the area. It is important to be open and honest about where you are moving to and/or could be moving to for your next duty assignment. Giving your family time to begin processing the move in their minds can help make the transition easier. This is especially true for children who will need to prepare themselves for leaving a familiar environment with their friends and school. Spouses also need time to emotionally prepare, tie up loose ends, say goodbye to friends, and give their current job notice.

Research the Area

If possible, try to research the area and provide your family with some highlights and features that may make them excited to start a new adventure.  What types of unique activities are in the area? Are you going to be close to any theme parks or other fun spots? Do the schools in the area have interesting programs or other highlights that make them especially attractive? Uncovering a few “gems” about the area can help generate excitement about your upcoming move.

Our next article will cover more tips on preparing your family for a military move.
