Change. One of the many things in life that is inevitable. We as adults have learned this through time and experience.
Trying to cope with change can be hard on anyone of any age. But it can be especially hard on little ones.
Big life changes such as a move, divorce, starting school, or any significant change in daily routines can set off a cornucopia of reactions.
I know from personal experience how hard it is on a child and parent alike to cope with change. This past summer was a summer of change for our family. My three year old daughter took to the new changes with open arms, yet my five year old son did not.
My husband had recently landed a new job a few states away and would be gone on business for three weeks at a time. As a result, we decided I should quit my full time job to become a stay at home mom.
Well…not at first.
