It seems that there is no big problem, but it is really serious for a child of 4 years. He has friends to whom he is used, kindergarten, caregivers and toys.
Sit the baby on your lap or sit side by side on the same level with it. Explain: “Son, I love you very much, but life is a complicated thing. We will have to move to another area, ”and explain the reasons for this.
Speak on equal terms, as with an adult, and do not be afraid that the baby will not understand.
Say that you understand how scary he is. All adults in the family are also exciting, because you will find yourself in a new place, where there will be other conditions.
Offer to go to the new garden in advance and see how it all works. Meet the guys from the new group, play with them on the playground, look at the toys, meet with the teacher. Especially since you probably already know the institution to which you will transfer the child.
If it is in one city and not very far away, you can say that they will sometimes be able to come to visit the old guys and invite them to visit them so that the kid will not be so sad.
Ask about what exactly the child is afraid of – maybe he has a friend Sasha, without whom he does not represent another friendship. Or Masha, without which he can not.
Needless to say, Masha will be another million and a big basket. It is necessary to say: “Let’s prepare some present for Masha, a drawing in memory of you, and I promise you that we will come back, agree with the Machine mom and go for a walk.”
Same thing with a friend whom he is afraid of losing.
Mom should not forget that now the child is faced with the fact that because of the move will have to change the garden. And then he will go to school, and the situation is not always the case that all the children who went to the same group of the garden will fall into one class with him, at best, a few or will be a completely new team. It also happens that children change several schools.
So that for him it would not be stress, as early as 4 years old, you need to teach your child to cope with this situation. It is very important that mother understands – talking with her son now and opening up new good opportunities, she gives him an understanding of how to cope with the situation not only now, but also in the future, how to behave and painlessly get out of stress.
