Moving with children can be stressful for the whole family. Relocating to a new area can have a big impact on kids, whether for better or worse. We’re all familiar with the film and TV trope of the ‘new kid’ having trouble adjusting in a new school or community. Those who have been through the experience themselves can relate to the difficulties involved.

While many parents worry about how their kids will respond to moving, most think that for the most part their kids will be excited to move. According to a new SpareFoot survey, 62 percent of parents say their child would be more excited than sad.

Maybe that because parents are more likely to cater to their kids needs when deciding where to move than they would their spouse. SpareFoot found that 69% of Americans would prioritize their child’s needs over their significant other’s needs.
