"You'll make new friends"
As someone who lived in one home from age 3-17, I can attest to what this writer is saying, that "home" is something permanent and safe, but I know this isn't the case with a lot of people.
How do you feel about the way the author deals with a big move? Is "You'll make new friends." A good way to deal with it?
I think that dealing with a move is different for every kid. No matter what, it's important for the parent to take the time to realize what it's going to be like for that particular kid. Talk to them and work through it. It may be no big deal for them, or it could be huge.
I think we both created good friendships with many different people and we both have very different views on if it's OK to move our children around frequently. He thinks it's fine because... they'll make new friends! I love the idea of having a more permanent home. My parents still live in the house I grew up in and I love all the memories the house holds for me. Sure, I'd have those memories even if they didn't live there, but being able to be in the house and have something little catch my eye brings those memories to the front of my brain.
