Creating a welcoming space for your child in your new home

As your divorce proceeds in Kentucky, you have decided that it is best that you relocate your home. This decision will enable you to move on and continue to positively and effectively reestablish your life as an independent person. At Fowler Bell, we have helped many people who are coping with the challenges of getting a divorce. 

One of your biggest hesitations about moving may have to do with how to help your child accept the change and thrive despite the upturning of his or her routine. Thankfully, you can do things that will make your new home a welcoming and exciting place for your child whenever he or she comes to visit or live temporarily. According to Parents, some of the things that you can consider doing include the following:

  • When your child comes to visit for the first few times, keep activities relaxed and low-key. Doing simple things such as reading together, doing a puzzle or going for a walk will allow your child time to transition without feeling overwhelmed. 
  • Once you select a room for your child to stay in, consider having him or her help you make decisions about where the bed will go and what type of decor should be used. It is also helpful to incorporate some of the things you know that your child likes to give the room a sense of familiarity. 
  • Never compete with your ex in providing the most exciting and most posh place for your child to live. Doing so can damage relationships and put a strain on what may be an already fragile circumstance. 

When you are prepared to help your child transition in ways that are productive and positive, you can be more confident about helping your child adjust to the changes in his or her life. For more information about child custody and visitation, visit our web page.
