How to Help Your Teen Adjust to Moving

Life changes, such as moving to a new home or to an entirely new city, can be difficult for most people, including teens. Dr. Sarah Garwood, Adolescent Medicine Specialist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, shares tips for how you can help your teen adjust to moving, including providing empathy and validation, involving them in the planning process, and focusing on the positives of this new opportunity. Moving can be a great adventure, and setting the example of a positive attitude during the changes that come with a move can help ease the adjustment for both you and your child.
