In brief: New home/new friends

Moving is difficult to adjust for some children.
Try making it easy by making sure u have phone numbers of old friends u r leaving behind. Throw a block party or invite class mates over for an afternoon play date. Some schools have programs for new students and their families to welcome them to the school community. Make sure u are there for your child but do not be over bearing.
