The idea of moving to a new house is not always easy for children to deal with. 👦🚚👧

Young children and even older kids can experience fear at the idea of moving, and not always for the reasons you might expect. 😟

Some children are afraid of leaving their friends, some fixate on the idea of moving to a new school, while others are afraid of the idea of moving away from the only home they’ve ever known. 😔

As many parents have discovered, uprooting your kids and dealing with the aftermath is not the best way to handle fears of moving or the sad feelings of leaving behind the old familiar neighborhood. 😢

Rather, the best way to deal with moving anxiety in your kids is to handle it in the lead-up while you’re packing and preparing to go. 👪🚚🏠

Children’s author and illustrator, Marla Huehmer, joins our John Masiulionis for Episode #107 of The Empowered Publicity Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her inspiring story, the release of her new children’s book, The Big Move, some of the challenges that families have faced when moving during the pandemic, ways to make moving more fun for children at this time, words of encouragement and support for families who are embarking on a new move, plus much more. 🚚📖

We encourage you, our fellow neighbors, to support Marla and his family by purchasing your copy of The Big Move, along with Marla’s other heartfelt children’s books to enjoy with your little one: https://bit.ly/3s54bw1​​. 📚
