I'm preparing to move at the end of this month, it will be the second "big" move (different state) we've had. I treat it as an adventure with the kids. My oldest (13) is equipped with Facebook, a laptop & webcam (Skype) so he can stay in contact with his friends here. I've researched the new town, schools, and told them all about how different it's going to be, and what a great opportunity this is for all of us. They are genuinely excited about moving, and are looking forward to making new friends and having new experiences. They know they can talk to me, they know I'm in their corner, I think that's most of the battle - just making sure that they know they are safe and loved. Best of luck to you!
