New to Ivillage.
I am in need of advice.
Hubby and I want to relocate for better weather and cheaper cost of living. We have a 9 soon to be 10 yr old boy.
When I mention the desire to move, son tells us he doesn't want to move. This is normal I suppose. He has a good group of friends. We have no kids on the block, we live on a private road, sort of secluded. Some of my friends say that he will get over it, and some tell me I have passed the window of opportunity for a move, that past second grade it is not a good idea.
We are in upstate NY now in a decent school district, but I have been researching some areas in the south that seem to have schools that offer more than what we have, and for a lot less overall cost of living. I also would like a neighborhood with kids on the block in a community setting, which doesn't exist here.
We can relocate job wise with ease.
What should we do?
