This is How To Contain Over-Excited Kids On Moving Day

Children are innately enthusiastic and energetic. They can play with their peers all day out in the sun. Once they get indoors, they play with their siblings some more. You watch in amazement wondering whether they will ever stop. Despite these being good traits, sometimes such kids do not know how or when to calm down. With such an energetic lot in tow during the day you are moving houses, there are bound to be problems. Some adults may find such traits annoying, and with the moving company crew on their way to help carry your stuff, you need to keep these kids under control.

Distract them

Kids rebel and feel powerless when they see strangers carrying away their belongings. Everything including their toys, shoes, and clothes is inside some cartons. If your preschooler appears overly upset and does not stop even after you tell him or her to, you need to respond authoritatively. Just ask the movers to proceed with their loading tasks. In the meantime, talk calmly to your child and offer to sit somewhere with them until they calm down.

Keep communicating

Teenagers may also have a hard time dealing with the moving day; especially if they have formed special friendship bonds with neighbors and or school mates. The moving day can turn them into difficult persons. Fortunately, for a teen, you already know their character and it is easier to predict reactions. Do reassure them that despite the day’s activities, you are available to talk at any time.

Contain Over Excited Kids On Moving Day

Channel the energy elsewhere

Hyperactive kids move a lot, talk too much and do not follow your instructions. They can snap from being happy to angry and frustrated. Since you want nothing to disrupt the activities of the day, make the child relax and pay attention. If he or she loves computer games, encourage them to go to their room and play their favorite. After that, go and instruct them to pack some remaining items. Make a list of things they can do one at a time.

Let them go to a relative’s

Despite their overreactive nature, children still look up to their parents for guidance. Let one of your relatives stay with them on a moving day. To relieve their stress, arrange for the family member to come and pick them up in the morning just before the movers arrive or immediately after. Allow the children to take their toys, computer games and other items they love.

Parents with hyperactive children know ways of dealing with them. You need to take control lest they ruin your moving day by getting in the way or just annoying the team. Look for a method of diverting their attention as loading of items proceeds. Assure and give them your full attention while also finding a way of channeling the extra energy. Decide with a close family member to come and pick them up in the morning of the D-Day; this can be a welcome relief.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
