First Day in the New Place

Many parents prefer to get kids' rooms set up as soon as possible, to help kids get started with the work of settling in. Where possible, give your kids some control -- "do you want your bed in the middle, or along this wall?" Along with their familiar furniture and toys, kids need familiar routines like dinnertime and bedtime.

Whether or not you have kids, you may find it useful to make time for a walk around your neighborhood. Check out the houses and yards on your street, perhaps saying hello to a neighbor or two, and make note of the locations of useful items like mailboxes, street signs, parks, convenience stores, and bus stops.
