  • from a child who moved 14 times in 14 years I can tell you moving is never easy on a child. How about a vacation?

  • Do what would make you happy. Dont ever stay somewhere you are unhappy, you have to do what is right for you and your family.

  • We move a lot with the military, and my kids never mind. They are always excited to see new places and make new friends, and they know we can go and visit grandma and other family every year too.

  • We did it too, 7 years ago and it was the best move we have ever made, the kids will bounce back if you do move. Depending on the age and if they are in school, I would let them finish the school year then move. Have a block party in your new area and invite the neighborhood kids.

My husbands dad doesnt give a crap about him or my two year old son and his mom passed away a while ago and my parents arent any better then his dad so theres no reason to stay here.
