    I moved around a lot as a kid. It sucked, and I think I would have had a better time maturing into a stable adult if I had a settled upbringing. But you're only moving 10 minutes away, so that's really nothing. One of the school districts I was in would split the kids up at middle school or high school anyways, so you could stay in the same house but still end up in a different school from half your friends one year to the next.

    10 minutes is nothing, I can fart for 10 minutes.

    Lol white people are such pussies. My mother moved me and my siblings to another [much poorer] country and said it was for a short while. I was there for nearly 8 years [​IMG]

    Why don't you just stay in your house but send your kids to boarding school?

    No hassle in packing/moving, you get the house to yourself (same space as having a bigger house but with kids in it (plus easier to boan the wife or throw swinger parties)), and your kids still get psychologically screwed up from having to change schools. Plus their new boarding school will be as good or better than the other new school district.

    Tell them they're moving to Armpit, OK and are never coming home again. Then tell them you're all only moving 10 minutes away. Relief settles in.

    This is a better plan. Take them on a 'vacation/scouting trip' as you look for a new place somewhere in the Rust Belt, then decide to only move 10 minutes away.

    Boarding school is like 40k/yr per kid, plus they might not be old enough. Some schools will discount you if you have more than one kid going through the school, but that's some serious coin if you've got 3 kids like kunk does. The whole moving 10 minutes away crisis is pretty funny though. As a kid, I lost my best friend, whom I'd known my whole life up to that point, because my dad had an affair with his mother, my mother wouldn't let me see him again, and it was decided we would move to a different province.

    No offense, but your kids are way too fucking white if moving 10 minutes is traumatic for them. Slap them then tell them how good their lives are.

    I didn't finish school in any age bracket in the same country. Somehow I think your children will survive a 10 minute difference.

    Tell them to suck it up or they will grow up to be even bigger pussies than you are kunk.

    He's kinda big to talk about revoking stuff from. It's enough he knows his place.

    1. I did it pretty much every year, kids deal. one move isn't going to kill anybody

    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.


    good luck


    +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.

    I like the bait and switch idea, threatening to move to a land far away and then only moving 10 minutes away. Welcome to politics.
    try to explain it to a 10-year old girl now [​IMG] my parents moved a lot around the city, but i fighted for the right to go to MY SCHOOL, though it took me more then an hour to get there during last years. my younger sister changed school every time we moved... and yes, that sucks.
    How did you manage to go to a school that didn't correspond with your family's propiska?

    if we're done talking about moms, one serious comment: kids live very much in the moment. when you first move, it will be the very worst thing that ever happened to them and how could you ruin their lives. put up with the ferrying back and for for a couple of weeks and all will be forgotten.
