Ask Paula

More of your questions from our chat at USA Today.com…

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.
