Tasha Cochran, her husband Joseph and their four children moved seven times in eight years.
They hopscotched across the country, from New York to Connecticut to Texas. They then landed in Philadelphia, PA, before finally settling in Washington, DC, as the couple’s careers grew and expanded. Cochran, founder of the blog One Big Happy Life, would never deny that relocation can present challenges, especially with children. But for their family, relocation helped them get out of their comfort zone, teaching them to explore exciting new places.
“Focusing on the new opportunities and adventures to be had in the new place really helps kids warm up to the idea of moving,” Cochran explains.
Sound easier said than done? You might be surprised. Understanding how other families have taken the relocation leap just might help make your own move feel more like an adventure and less like a free fall.
