These new 48 conversation cards, available from my online shop are for parents or carers to use to encourage open discussions with children in the run-up to a home move.
Moving home can be one of the most stressful experiences there is, generating not only a long list of practical tasks, from packing to informing utility companies, but also sometimes anxiety too. Children in particular can often worry about what the future holds in a home move, particularly if it involves a new school or moving away from family or friends. These cards will help you to stimulate open and frank conversations with your children about all sorts of subjects – from packing up and moving pets to making new friends and starting a new school.
Whether you are moving up the road or overseas, these cards are ideal for starting a conversation that can help to reassure your child. They can be used at home or on the go – any time that suits you!
“As a military family we’ve had several house moves as well as new schools. Talking about what’s happening can make it less daunting for children and anything that helps those conversations along is very welcome. These cards will be a great addition.”

Another incentive, if you needed one, is that 10% of all sales will be donated to the Jermain Defoe Foundation, set up by the Sunderland FC striker to support homeless, vulnerable and abused young people in both his and Laura’s families’ home country of St Lucia.
