Ask Lisa Podcast - Episode 169

How Do We Move Our Family Without Damaging Our Kids?

Episode 169

Dr. Lisa and Reena tackle the challenge of making a big move with kids. A parent writes in with concerns about her kids’ reactions to the news of the move and asks how to best support them through the transition. Dr. Lisa provides insights on how parents can prepare kids for moving and offers age-specific strategies for helping children cope. Dr. Lisa and Reena discuss the importance of validating emotions, maintaining predictability, and involving children – when possible – in decision-making. Dr. Lisa also addresses common misconceptions about the implications of moving at a young age and explores the benefits of parents sharing their own feelings about the transition. Tune in for practical tips and guidance on navigating family transitions with empathy and resilience.
