To the parent who is
worried about breaking the news about an impending move
to her 7-year-old daughter: Ask yourself if your
daughter would do better with lot of advance notice to
prepare herself emotionally or if she would do best with
less time to dwell on it. The key is to separate what’s
more comfortable for you from what would be best for
her. Once you tell her, allow her to have a range of
feelings, including some denial, anger, and grief.
Moving to a new home represents a loss and should be
approached with that in mind.
