Have you had a chance to read our last blog yet? If you have, then you already know about a couple of things you can do to childproof your move. To recap, our movers in Central Florida talked about scheduling your move around your kids and keeping all dangerous materials away from your children. Keep reading to learn about more ways to childproof your move:
#3. Make a space for your child.
There is often a lot of activity going on during a move, and if you want to make sure that your child is safe and out of the heavy traffic in and out of your home, set them up in an empty room of their own with a child gate. Make sure that you periodically check on them and provide them with plenty of stuff to do, like a book, coloring activities, a portable TV, etc. A child that is bored is much more likely to get creative (and destructive).
#4. Let everyone know you have a child.
Whoever is helping you move, whether they be movers, friends or family, it is important to let them know that there will be kids present during your move. This will help everyone to be more aware of where they keep dangerous items.
#5. Keep stress at bay.
Moving is a big change, which isn’t always easy for kids to understand or to deal with. Sometimes buying your child a new toy or a treat can help to calm them down and keep them busy while you are busy handling your move.
