2. see what you can do to help keep some of the best friendships going, while encouraging to meet new people and move on. my son has had his best friend move every year for the past 3 years, shit happens.
+1 on all three. raised in a military family. it's probably harder because they're not used to moving, but they'll get used to it. it'll take a couple of months of ferrying to the old neighborhood, but eventually that will stop, too. when my daughter was just out of elementary school, we moved. it was pissy for a little bit but kids are resilient.
