i dont agree with your'e comment on younger children being more affected than teenagers. i was made to move when i was 13 away from all my friends i was devastated i felt like killing myself. its been 2 and half years and im still having trouble coping. id advise you to think about the kids b4 you move.

i disagree with your comment about younger children finding it harder to move. im 14 years old and i have been to about 15 different schools. i have just recently moved again, and i am finding this to be the hardest move yet. this is because when i was younger, i didnt really understand that much about how i wasnt going to get to see my friends that much. now that im older i have made a lot of deep friendships and a lot of connections to the place i was living in (church, gymnastics...). i advise you to not move until your children are on their holidays, and make sure to tell them about the upcoming move as soon as possible( give them time to let the news sink in!)

i found with our oldest that he began wetting his pants and bed every night again both during and after the move. we have been settled in our new home for about 3 months now and still he wets himself. is there any other mom's out there who have battled with the same problem? if so, please place your tips and suggestions on the board. thanks.

moving house is particularly stressful to younger children and even babies. what you have to remember is that young children adapt to their environments and become familiar with their surroundings. up-rooting those familiar strings will almost always cause some sort of regression such as pants wetting or soiling. if your bedwetting child isn't far from his or her days of wearing diapers, putting them back into diapers for the night will at least help keep bedding and clothing dry and clean. another option is to use cotton training pants or "soakers" along with rubber pants over top to manage any leaks that may arrise throughout this time.

i moved suburbs 2and a half years ago at the age of 16 and yes it is the hardest for a teenager to move due to the fact that you leave friends, family and a environment that you know so well behind. and if parents ever want to move please do confront your teenage children first.

i have changed 4 schools till i reach 10th standard. but i liked that move and enjoyed new friends and new neighbours.

i believe that it is very important for small children particularly aged 3-7 years old to at least see the start of the move and to see the house when it is empty, likewise the furniture arriving in their new home. it gave my daughter a point of reference and understanding that talking could not have acheived on it's own. she would have been very frightened if everything had moved out of her old house and into the new one without her seeing it happen. involve your children in the move. my son is in charge of making signs for each room and is thrilled to be helping.

i have been teachingb at numerous international school were majority of the population are travelled migrants . parents who worry about changing acedmic system this is comfort . at the ned of the day its education and kid who excell in one system will excel in any . there are always the top , medicore and duds everywhere . and they remain the same

tck stands for the third culture kid . it is defined as kids who grow up in a culture that is different from what their borth culture is . any migrant individual is a tck and don't mistake it for a westermn term . it is a phenomenon that we have to deal with in a increasingly globalising world where more businesses are going global and we are being forced to migrate . i recently did some study on this topic and would like to comment , sharing my findings on this topic with readers . i explored indian migrants trough the age spectrum of a whole lifespan . the youngest subject was a 2 month old baby and the eldest a 78 year old man . so i can be justified in my thesis . there is no best age per say to migrate . this is espicially in the concern of children up to 18 years . however before the age of two these kids fit in the best with a new cculture and can adapt well into a new society . however migration at the ages of 5-10leave kids in an identity cricis what that means is that they are not dure where they belong . a typical migrant to the usa at the age of 5 reflects at the age of 15 saying that he knows that he has a house in india but has only vague memories of the country . he also feels that usa is like a foregin country as he has no friends and family there . however migration at adolscence seems more to it . kids have their identities established but established opinions lead to them haveing issues being accepted . wehn one teenager migrated to a foregin country , she said that the culture was not to be ;hands up first in class; to answer a question . however she was used to it and continued to do it leavingher with a limiyted social circle . she escaped becasues she was an acedmic star . eventually the all-rounbder of the school . so migration does leave your kids as global citizens , what they should be in todays society , but also leaves them as nomadic tribes . howevrw migrated and travveled kids do make better duccesses .
