This is another post about adult children moving back with their parents. In this particular post we are going to discuss the issues around or associated with the stress of moving. Also covered are how to handle them.
Moving at the best of times can be stressful for many people. There are a lot of things to coordinate, signing all of the legal documents, making arrangements with the bank for the mortgage or loan, paying the rent ahead of time, booking the truck to move, and arranging with friends to assist in the moving activity are all part of the move and can cause a lot of stress.
The best way to avoid stress associated movie is to make sure that everything is well planned.
Prepare a Check list of the things that you need to do associated with the move. If you’re the parents of the adult children that are moving out of your home this is something that you may want to discuss with your children to ensure that there are no last minute hiccups. By the time they move out, you’re probably ready for them to leave so that you can get your house back. You don’t want any last-minute problems that forces them to stay longer.
Focus on the big things, reserve the truck well in advance, arranging for a lawyer if you’re buying a home, talk to the bank about making arrangements for the mortgage, make arrangements for people to help with the move. All of the other little things can be looked after on the fly. Stay calm and focus on the move rather than getting frazzled by all the small details.
Your going to miss the kids once they have moved out. If they have kids of their own, you will especially miss the grand kids as well. Although there will be times there was some conflict, if you have worked through these issues, and found the space needed then you will have mixed feelings about them leaving. You may even be happy to see them move out and get your house back. You will also miss them very much. Both emotions are fine and to be expected.
