Getting Teens To Chip Into The Moving Process

When you break the news to the family that you will be moving to a new place soon, you can expect very different reactions from kids. For teenagers, it is normal to yell, bang doors and even leave unexpectedly. Over the next couple of weeks, the tantrums and the resistance can get worse where the teen refuses to talk to you or help with anything concerning the move. Can you get angry teens to chip into the moving process? Here are some tips;

Understand them

The solution to all problems will begin by you understanding what they are going through. Instead of stooping down to their level of anger, be the parent and talk to them kindly about their feelings. Though they might still yell and speak with an angry voice or even cry, you should show and express your understanding to their issues and find out how you can make it easier.

Be firm but polite

The one thing you should never get yourself involved in is a tag of war with a teenager. Don’t get into a screaming match or silent treatment with them because they are way better at it. Avoid yelling and fighting with them about every little thing and just ask politely or put reminders everywhere.

If there are things that your teen has been asking you to do or buy for them, now is the time to step up in exchange to them helping around. Tell them that you will do that one thing if they finish packing up their room and make sure you keep your end of the bargain.

Invite friends

Teens value their friends and if you allow them to bring their friends over to help, chances are that they will agree to do so. Make sure that you give them a lot of work if a few friends come over because they will be excited to do it. In additions, provide a lot of snacks and drinks and give them time to play games in their room alone.

Just leave it

You can bribe, beat, nag and even scream your head off in vain if the teenager is determined to defy your orders. If they absolutely don’t want to chip in, you can just leave them and their room alone. Sometimes a little space and being ignored is all it takes to bring a teenager back to their mother’s arms. Pack up the rest of the house and ignore their attempt to ruin your move. Eventually when they see you are serious, they will get up and pack because they don’t want to be left behind homeless.

Dealing with teenagers is very frustrating enough on a normal day let alone on the moving day. You have to be patient, strong and have some people to help you cope with the stress. Have people who your teenager respects a lot like a mentor, uncle or even a friend talk to them when they get too difficult.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

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.
