Moving to a new home is often overwhelming for children. Meeting new people in a new environment - coupled with the sadness of leaving family and friends behind can be very distressing. Children often "check out" - basically shutting down. Others act out - behaving aggressively.
Help your child feel more comfortable and confident right from the start using our "My New Home" Photo Book. Each child-sized Photo Book is an album which caregivers and children assemble together before moving. Getting kids involved in preparing for change is a great way to reduce anticipatory anxiety and gain a sense of control. Letting children take the photos with the disposable camera adds extra involvement and control!
Each photo album includes specific questions designed to get children talking about the experience as well as suggested activities to help ease their anticipatory anxiety and improve his or her transition.
A flat fee of $5. S&H will be added to all domestic orders. Foreign orders may have an increased fee.
